Defective transcobalamin II (produced by the TCN2 gene) results in TCN2 deficiency (MIM:275350), an autosomal recessive disorder with early-onset in infancy characterized by failure to thrive, megaloblastic anemia, and pancytopenia. If left untreated, the disorder can result in mental retardation and neurologic abnormalities (Haberle et al. 2009).
