Notes This database contains published pathogenic variants for ULD and additional missense and splice variants with unknown or no pathogenity. Information for the latter was collected from NCBI SNPdb database (build 137; http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/snp) and NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project (ESP; http://evs.gs.washington.edu/EVS/).

The establishment of this gene variant database (LSDB) was supported by the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement nÂș 200754 - the GEN2PHEN project.
Date created April 29, 2010
