Rebecca Foulger (Genomics England curator)

Comment on list classification: Downgraded rating from Amber to Red following advice from Genomics England clinical team: Not a multi-system ciliopathy and therefore Red rating is appropriate. Note that DCDC2 is Green on the
Neonatal cholestasis panel, which is the appropriate panel for this gene.

Red List (low evidence)

Gene should be red for Rare multisystem ciliopathy disorders.
Evidence that gene variants are responsible for neonatal sclerosing cholangitis; however, this phenotype is not currently included in the criteria for rare multisystem ciliopathy disorders.

Red List (low evidence)

Based on published evidence this gene should be RED for the Rare multisystem ciliopathy disorders.

This is because there is only ONE patient (in 25557784) who has a renal phenotype plus hepatic disease. The paper has lots of functional data. This is the second paper I have seen from this team where the functional data is strong but the clinical phenotyping is exceptionally weak.

The other patient in this report (25557784) has hepatic fibrosis only and does not have renal disease. In the second paper (27469900) the patients with mutations have neonatal sclerosing cholangitis.

There is evidence that this gene affects cilial function, but the phenotype most consistently reported does not fall within the current clinical phenotype criteria for rare multisystem ciliopathy disorders.

There are two options: either widen the phenotype criteria for rare multi-system ciliopathies to include hepatic fibrosis, or just keep this gene within cholestasis section.

Green List (high evidence)

Although neonatal sclerosing cholangitis is not classically considered a ciliopathy, the published literature specifically provides evidence for abnormal cilia in patients with bi-allelic variants in this gene.

Ellen McDonagh (Genomics England Curator)

Comment on list classification: I am unsure whether Neonatal sclerosing cholangitis should be included on this panel - if so, there is enough evidence for this gene to be green - see publications PMID:27469900 and PMID: 27319779.

I don't know

Comment on list classification: Most often associated with neonatal sclerosing cholangitis which is not relevant phenotype for this panel. Await further evidence of association with nephronophthisis

Only seen in two patients but supported by animal models. Probable DD on G2P
