PMID:29266534 summarises 62 unique 'mutations' in MYO5B (although at least one of those described has an allele frequency in ExAC of 0.3420, and thus is more likely to represent a polymorphism than a pathogenic variant). PMID: 24014347 reports a database of pathogenic variants, containing 41 variants at the time of publication. These 41 variants are included in the 62 reviewed in PMID:29266534. 15 of the 41 variants are apparently monoallelic, however the text suggests a digenic mechanism to account for this finding, rather than dominant inheritance. PMID:29266534 also reports functional evidence from cell studies and animal models that indicates that loss of function of MYO5B is associated with microvillus dysfunction and features of microvillus inclusion disease.
