I don't know

Bristol - no (likely)pathogenic variants out of approx.1900 patients tested. Other aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases are associated with CMT (GARS, AARS) but for this gene cannot reach PanelApp criteria for inclusion. PMID: 20920668 - Compound heterozygosity for loss-of-function lysyl-tRNA synthetase mutations in a patient with peripheral neuropathy - some functional evidence to support, isolated cases with no segregation. PMID: 25476837 - suggests one of the variants in the earlier paper is actually stable and PMID: 23768514
