Short summary

Hypothesized by Cabral et al 2012 (PMID: 22289416) to cause peeling skin syndrome, in a recessive manner. The authors report not seeing this variant in 200 Pakistani controls, but ExAC data finds it carried by 1 in 85 with south asian ancestry. This relatively high allele frequency contradicts the variant having the hypothesized high penetrance effect.
