Relevance to Autism
Two de novo missense variants that were predicted to be probably damaging (defined as MPC 2) were identified in the MKX gene in ASD probands from the Autism Sequencing Consoritum, while an additional protein-truncating variant in this gene was observed in a case sample from the Danish iPSYCH study (Satterstrom et al., 2020). TADA analysis of de novo variants from the Simons Simplex Collection and the Autism Sequencing Consortium and protein-truncating variants from iPSYCH in Satterstrom et al., 2020 identified MKX as a candidate gene with a false discovery rate (FDR) 0.01.
The protein encoded by this gene is an IRX family-related homeobox protein that may play a role in cell adhesion.
