Comment on list classification: Updated rating from Grey to Green: 3 Meckel-Gruber patients with 3 different TXNDC15 variants reported in PMID:27894351 (2 consanguineous Saudi and Pakistani) plus functional data (Patient fibroblasts had aberrant ciliogenesis). Helen Brittain confirms that sufficient variants and appropriate phenotype for inclusion on panel.

Shaheen et al. 2016 (PMID:27894351) report TXNDC15 variants in two consanguineous Saudi families that share the features of Meckel-Gruber syndrome (a ciliopathy phenotype). Phenotypes of both patients included polydactyly; one patients was still born, and one survived till 11 hours old.

Furthermore, through an international collaboration, they were able to identify an additional Meckel-Gruber syndrome patient (Pakistani origin) with a homozygous truncating variant in this gene. The patient also had polydactyly, although a sibling presented similarly but with no polydactyl.

Patient fibroblasts had aberrant ciliogenesis.

I don't know

Individuals from two families reported within this paper with some functional data and a Meckel-Gruber phenotype. Probably merits Amber.
