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 UDN participant with prune belly syndrome and strokes due to disease of the arteries in the brain (arteriopathy) (read full description).

Micro RNA 145
MIR145 encodes for microRNA-145. MicroRNAs bind to complementary target mRNAs, which prevents the mRNA from being translated or cleaved. MicroRNA-145 has been shown to be important for the proper development and function of smooth muscle cells (Riches-Susman, 2021).
