Sarah Leigh (Genomics England Curator)

Comment when marking as ready: Associated with phenotype in OMIM and G2P. Found in 1/4 sources. Reviewer suggested this gene and recommended Green. It is associated with Ichthyosis prematurity syndrome, 608649, which overlaps with autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis. Numerous variants reported.

Green List (high evidence)

FATP4 (SLC27A4) causes ichthyosis prematurity syndrome. There is a protein interaction with ichthyin (NIPAL4) and the phenotype in ichthyosis prematurity syndrome does overlap with ARCI - so there may be some cases that are more ARCI - maybe a level 2 evidence here. Kids are born prematurely and have respiratory difficulty often requiring ventilation - but the skin is clearly ARCI.
