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, abnormal muscle tone and movement, and light pigmentation of the hair and skin (hypopigmentation) (read full description).

The EZH1 gene codes for a protein important in the maintenance of embryonic stem cell pluripotency. This protein plays a role in transcriptional silencing (Shen, et al., 2008).
A de novo change in this gene was identified in a UDN participant. Research is underway to see if this change is causing symptoms in this participant.
