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 this gene was identified in a female, age 25 with Landau-Kleffner syndrome and progressive lower limb weakness (read full description). 

Date of Report

Sep 20, 2018

Full Name

cyclin dependent kinase 18

Chromosome 1q32.1


Cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) coordinate cell cycle checkpoints with DNA repair mechanisms that together maintain genome stability. CDK18 may play a role in signal pathways in cells (Malumbres et al. 2009).
