INPP5E is associated with MORM syndrome on OMIM and Gene2Phenotype. PMID: 19668215 reported on a Pakistani family who have MORM syndrome with homozygous variant that resulted in a premature termination of the protein in affected family members. The same paper also did function studies to investigate the effects of this variant on cilium function and found that the mutant protein affected the stabilization of the primary cilium. The authors also made a Inpp5e knockout mouse model; however, the deletion was embryonically lethal. PMID: 31173343 reported on another Pakistani family who have MORM syndrome. The affected individuals have the same variant as that described in PMID: 19668215, and the authors have said that the two families are from the same province. Therefore, until more evidence is available this gene has been given an amber gene rating.
