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 DYSF gene was identified in a UDN participant with progressive muscle weakness and wasting (read full description).

Date of Report

Oct 18, 2022

Full Name

F-box protein 8

Chromosome 4 (4q34.1)


F-box proteins, such as FBXO8, are components of modular E3 ubiquitin protein ligases called SCFs (SKP1, cullin, F-box proteins), which function in phosphorylation-dependent ubiquitination (Winston et al., 1999).
