Comment on list classification: New gene added by Zornitza Stark (Australian Genomics). This gene is not associated with a phenotype in OMIM or Gene2Phenotype. As only 1 case has situs inversus this gene has been added to this panel as a Red gene.

After discussion with the Genomics England Clinical Team it was decided that this gene would be better suited for the Respiratory ciliopathies including non-CF bronchiectasis (Version 1.45). This gene has been added as an Amber gene with a recommendation for Green status on that panel.

Green List (high evidence)

Biallelic missense variants reported in 3 unrelated individuals. Apart from asthenoteratozoospermia, all 3 had PCD or "PCD-like" symptoms of reccurring airway infections, bronchiectasis, and rhinosinusitis. One individual had situs inversus. Studies on cells from one indivdidual showed abnormal respiratory cilia structure. BRWD1 staining was absent from respiratory cilia in this individual (present in controls).
