Disease ID:300
Name:Enhanced S-cone syndrome; ESCS
Associated with:1 target
Goldmann-Favre syndrome
Database Links
OMIM: 268100
Orphanet: ORPHA53540


Comments:  Several mutation affecting NR2E3 are associated with ESCS. A splice acceptor site mutation, an A-to-C transversion in the splice acceptor site of intron 1 of the NR2E3 gene, an arg76-to-trp missense mutation in the NR2E3 gene, caused by a C-to-T transition, an arg76-to-gln mutation resulting from a G-to-A transition and a. deletion of 9 bp of the NR2E3 gene, resulting in a 3-amino acid deletion (codons 67-69) in the NR2E3 protein. Other reports include NR2E3 Mutations (R104Q, R334G) Associated with a mild form of Enhanced S-Cone Syndrome. A potential Arg311Gln mutation in the NR2E3 gene has been identified in a family with classic Goldmann-Favre syndrome.
