NOTE Allelic variants listed here are collated from The Cardiff-Rotterdam Tuberous Sclerosis Mutation Database, David Kwiatkowski’s Tuberous Sclerosis Project, publications and submissions to the database. Should you notice that there are allelic variants not in the database or that there are errors, please inform us.

The curation of this database is supported by the TSAlliance and the Tuberous Sclerosis Association, and it is kindly hosted by the Leiden University Medical Center. The curators are based at University College London.

Uncurated Data - If you have a Clinical problem with a variant that is not visible in the database, please note that we have a backlog of uncurated data, so do contact us.

Liability - All contents of this database are protected by local and international copyright laws. The information is submitted for the purpose of sharing genetic and clinical information. Genetic variants listed may or may not have a causal association with disease phenotypes, irrespective of stated classifications or other information presented in the database. All information in this database, including variant classifications, is subject to change and there is no warranty, express or implied, as to its accuracy, completeness, or fitness for a particular purpose. Use of this database and information is subject to User responsibility and discretion. Clinical decisions regarding individual patient care should be carried out in conjunction with a healthcare professional with expertise in the relevant genes and diseases. We (the TS Alliance, the Tuberous Sclerosis Association, University College London, Leiden University Medical Centre or any of their employees or agents) do not accept any liability for any injury, loss or damage incurred by use of or reliance on the information provided by this database.

Database submitters are required to adhere to their institution's rules for data sharing, and local and national laws. Submitters retain the rights to use their data and can update their data by contacting the curators. Database curators may curate data to ensure that database formatting and quality standards are met. They may also share submitted data with external parties for research purposes or for sharing with other databases.
