Relevance to Autism

De novo likely gene-disruptive (LGD) variants in the CASZ1 gene have been identified in two ASD-affected siblings from a multiplex family (Yuen et al., 2017), one proband with intellectual disability (Lelieveld et al., 2016), and one proband with an unspecified developmental disorder (Deciphering Developmental Disorders Study 2017). An integrated meta-analysis of de novo mutation data from a combined dataset of 10,927 individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders identified CASZ1 as a gene with an excess of LGD variants (false discovery rata < 5%, count >1) (Coe et al., 2018).

Molecular Function

The protein encoded by this gene is a zinc finger transcription factor and may function as a tumor suppressor.
