Only 1 variant reported: In 2 consanguineous Arab families with palmoplantar keratoderma and woolly hair, originally reported by Djabali et al. (PMID:11874502, 2002), Ramot et al. (PMID:24671081, 2014) performed exome sequencing and identified homozygosity for a missense mutation in the KANK2 gene: c.2009C-T transition resulting in an ala670-to-val (A670V) substitution. The 6 unaffected parents were all heterozygous for the mutation.
