On this page, you will find information about a genetic change that was 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.
A change in the ATOX1 gene was identified in a UDN participant with heart abnormalities, global developmental delay, brain MRI abnormality, and seizures (infantile spasms) that are now well-treated and controlled (read full description).

Antioxidant 1 Copper Chaperone
ATOX1 gene is responsible for delivering copper to the metal-binding domains of the ATPase proteins, ATP7A and ATP7B (Hussain et al 2008).
A change in this gene was identified in a UDN participant. Research is underway to see if this change is causing symptoms in this participant.
