Red List (low evidence)

Associated with phenotypes in OMIM and as a possible G2P gene for {Epilepsy, childhood absence, susceptibility to, 6} 611942.
To date in Hyperaldosteronism, familial, type IV 617027 at least 5 AD variants reported in PMID 25907736 & 27729216. Only p.Met1549Ile & p.Met1549Val have so far been associated with causation. Recommendation from Helen Britain that this gene be tiered when it is possible to "white list" variants
