Genomic Medicine Lab, University of California San Francisco RCV000754643 SCV000882573 pathogenic Mental retardation, autosomal dominant 32 2018-04-26 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing A reportable heterozygous frameshift variant in the KAT6A, gene(c.4038delT) was identified at chromosomal position chr8: 41791700 (hg19). The KAT6A gene is a member of the MYST family of proteins. KAT6A is a lysine acetyltransferase and is part of the complex responsible for transcriptional regulation through acetylation of lysine 9 on histone H3. Variants in this gene are associated with Mental Retardation, Autosomal Dominant 32; MRD32 (MIM: 616268). In particular individuals with de novo loss of function variants in this gene have been described to have global developmental delay with speech delay, microcephaly, hypotonia, feeding difficulties, and subtle facial dysmorphysm including thin upper lip, bitemporal narrowing / large forehead, flat nasal bridge with broad nasal tip, microretrognathia and posteriorly located or low-set years. Congenital cardiac defects, ocular abnormalities and cardiac defects have also been reported while intermitted neutropenia has been described in one patient. This variant is not reported in the 1000 Genomes, ExAC, or gnomAD population sequencing projects and data from the ExAC database show that this gene is intolerant to loss of function variants (pLI=1). Furthermore, this variant is located in the acidic glutamate/aspartate-rich region consistent with the location of other pathogenic truncating variants reported to date.
