Answer

Recessive mutations in glycotransferase-like domain-containing protein 2 (GTDC2) are a rare cause of Walker-Warburg syndrome. [43]

The original description was based on whole exome sequencing of consanguineous Walker-Warburg affected families.

GTDC2 is predicted to be a glycotransferase and knockdown of this gene in zebrafish replicates many features of Walker-Warburg syndrome.
