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.

Full Name

Multiple EGF Like Domains 10

Chromosome 5 (5q23.2)


This gene codes for a protein that plays an important role in cell proliferation and differentiation (Takayama et al., 2016). This protein also mediates phagocytosis of apoptotic cells and is involved in the uptake of amyloid beta receptors in the brain (Iram et al., 2016; Singh et al., 2010).
