This gene was part of an initial gene list collated by Matthew Edwards Royal Brompton Hospital sent 16th Jan 2019 on behalf of the London South GLH for review by the GMS Cardiology Specialist Group. Only gene symbol from the Royal Brompton gene panel was provided - suggested initial gene rating and evidence for inclusion not provided with the list.

Comment on list classification: Updated rating from Red to Green following request from Athina Ververi (GOSH), and advice from Helen Brittain. Green expert review, two literature cases (2010/PMID:20826270 and 2017/Bordbar et al), plus mouse model (PMID:20826270). PTPN14 is on the St. George's hospital Primary Lymphedema Disorders 15 Gene Panel, and it is recorded in literature and from clinical review that variants in PTPN14 are a rare cause of lymphedema.

Au et al (2010, PMID:20826270) provide a mouse model of PTPN14 deficiency where 14% of mutant animals showed swelling of limb extremeties.

Bordbar et al (2017, report an Iranian family with a single child with bilateral choanal atresia and infantile-onset lymphedema. Screening of PTPN14 revealed a novel homozygous frameshift insertion in exon4 (p.(Leu135Tyrfs*5). This forms the second reported family with choanal atresia and lymphedema syndrome: The first family was reported in Au et al, 2010 (PMID:20826270).
Created: 17 Sep 2018, 2:41 p.m.
PMID:24167460 (Mendola et al. 2013) screened 227 samples for lymphedema genes but no PTPN14 variant was found in this study: PTPN14 variants may account for a very small proportion of primary hereditary lymphedema.
