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 10, with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, low muscle tone (muscle hypotonia), and low bone density (osteopenia) (read full description).

muscle, skeletal, receptor tyrosine kinase
The MUSK gene codes for a muscle-specific kinase required for neuromuscular junction formation (DeChiara et al., 1996).
A change in this gene was identified in a UDN participant. Research is underway to see if this change is causing symptoms in this participant.
