NEFL S472Shift - GET-Evidence


NEFL S472Shift

(NEFL 472delSinsShift)

Short summary

Although a frameshift in this gene would be predicted to cause Charcot-Marie Neuropathy, this particular position appears to reflect a single base insertion error/mutation in the reference genome (in other words, normal individuals are always homozygous for a deletion at this position relative to reference). See chr8:24,811,060-24,811,080 annotations on UCSC.
