Comment on list classification: Promoted from Amber to Green due to ID panel review there is enough evidence to support MTOR and Focal cortical dysplasia, type II.

De novo somatic variants in this gene have been reported in brain tissue of patients with seizures due to focal cortical dysplasia type 2, in more than 6 patients (PMID: 26018084;27830187;25878179). PMID:27830187 also reports an inherited variant identified in a mother-daughter pair with nonlesional autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy. Functional in vitro studies in PMID: 26018084 indicate that the mechanism of action may be activating somatic mutations.
