Haploinsufficiency phenotype comments:

Defects in DYM are the cause of Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen dysplasia (DMC) and Smith-McCort dysplasia (SMS), two similar rare autosomal recessive osteochondrodysplasias. Most mutations identified in DMC predict a loss of function, while those identified in SMC are mainly missense mutations, presumably associated with residual DYM activity and a less severe phenotype. Of note, Two small intragenic duplications in the DYM gene were detected in two seperate DMC kindreds. These were expected to result in a premature termination codon and the transcripts destroyed by nonsense mediated decay with subsequent failure to produce a protein product (PMID: 16326827).
