Relevance to Autism
De novo missense variants in the AGO4 gene have been identified in two ASD probands (De Rubeis et al., 2014). An integrated meta-analysis of de novo mutation data from a combined dataset of 10,927 individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders identified AGO4 as a gene with an excess of missense variants (false discovery rata < 5%, count >1); AGO4 was similarly identified as a gene with an excess of de novo missense variants (false discovery rata < 5%, count >1) following analysis of 5,624 cases with a primary diagnosis of ASD (Coe et al., 2018).
This gene encodes a member of the Argonaute family of proteins which contain PAZ and PIWI domains and play an integral role in RNA interference and short-interfering-RNA-mediated gene silencing.
