On this page, you will find information about genetic changes that were identified in a UDN participant. We are trying to find others with the same or similar condition.

Sharing information on this website is not a requirement of UDN participation. Only descriptions about participants who give explicit consent will appear here.

Changes in this gene were identified in a female, age 6, with developmental delay, problems with coordination (ataxia), difficulty speaking (dysarthria), and tremor (read full description).

Full Name

Ankyrin 3

Chromosome 10 (10q21.2)


ANK3 codes for an ankyrin, which is a type of protein believed to link membrane proteins to the cytoskeleton and play key roles in cell motility, activation, proliferation, contact, and maintenance of specialized membrane areas (Mohler, Gramolini, & Vann Bennett, 2002).
