Haploinsufficiency phenotype comments:

Several loss of function mutations in TIMM8A, including deletion, frameshift, nonsense, and splicing mutations, have been reported in patients with deafness-dystonia-optic neuropathy (DDON) syndrome. Males are always affected and female carriers may have mild hearing loss and mild dystonia symptoms. See GeneReviews

The loss-of-function and triplosensitivity ratings for genes on the X chromosome are made in the context of a male genome to account for the effects of hemizygous duplications or nullizygous deletions. In contrast, disruption of some genes on the X chromosome causes male lethality and the ratings of dosage sensitivity instead take into account the phenotype in female individuals. Factors that may affect the severity of phenotypes associated with X-linked disorders include the presence of variable copies of the X chromosome (i.e. 47,XXY or 45,X) and skewed X-inactivation in females.

  • Triplosensitivity score: 0
  • Strength of Evidence (disclaimer): No evidence for dosage pathogenicity
