I don't know

This gene is not associated with a relevant phenotype in OMIM or Gene2Phenotype.

There are 3 unrelated cases with early retinal degeneration and only 2 cases had DCM (PMID: 31903486 and 29886034). The case described in PMID: 29886034 did not report any segregation results for the affected individual with DCM. The case described in 29886034, affected individuals were treated with taurine for 2 years and the cardiomyopathy was corrected.
The mouse model (PMID: 20804595) is a KO taurine transporter showed a cardiac.
