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 male, age 3, with global developmental delay, low muscle tone, and feeding difficulties (read full description).

Date of Report

Dec 10, 2019

Full Name

DMRT like family A2

Chromosome 1 (1p32.3)


The DMRTA2 gene codes for the protein Dmrta2 in the Dmrt family of transcription factors. This protein family plays a role in the developing reproductive system. In addition, Dmrta2 also plays a role in the developing brain, specifically the maintenance of neural progenitor cells during cortical development (Young et al., 2017).
