Mode of inheritance
BIALLELIC, autosomal or pseudoautosomal

Joubert syndrome; vermis hypoplasia; thick superior cerebellar peduncles; superior cerebellar dysplasia; ataxia; developmental delay


Gabrielle Wheway (University of the West of England)

Homozygous c.1910A>C p.Asp637Ala missense mutation in 4 Hutterite Joubert families. Hypomorphic mutation rather than complete null. This allele didn't rescue loss of cilia after Pibf1 siRNA knockdown in cell cultures, but expression of wild-type PIBF1 did. 7 Joubert families with heterozygous PIBF1 mutations, unknown clinical relevance
