Comment on list classification: Adding this gene as Amber as two cases reported. This gene should be looked at, at the next GMS review to assess whether the phenotype is relevant to the panel.

PMID: 32336749 - Malki et al 2020 - identified homozygous variants in C3ORF52 in four individuals with Localized autosomal recessive hypotrichosis (LAH) (2 families). C3ORF52 was found to be coexpressed with lipase H in the inner root sheath of the hair follicle and the two proteins were found to directly interact. The variants were associated with decreased C3ORF52 expression and resulted in markedly reduced lipase H-mediated LPA biosynthesis. Abstract only accessed.
