Summary
This gene is located within the Smith-Magenis syndrome region on chromosome 17. Mutations in this gene are associated with Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome, which is characterized by fibrofolliculomas, renal tumors, lung cysts, and pneumothorax. Alternative splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants encoding different isoforms.

Variant counts

Variant classification counts according to ACMG guideline on all identified variants among our tested samples are listed. The variants with over 5% variant frequency in population genome databases ( gnomAD, dbSNP, etc) are excluded.
