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 CDK19 gene was identified in a female, age 25, with severe intellectual disability, seizures, and absent speech (read full description).

Date of Report

Full Name

cyclin dependent kinase 19

Chromosome 6 (6q21)


CDK19, also known as cyclin dependent kinase 19, encodes for a protein that, in conjunction with its paralog CDK8 and other proteins, form a CDK module. This multi-protein complex regulates RNA polymerase II and transcriptional activity (Chung et al., 2020).
