myosin heavy chain 8
A change in the MYH8 gene has been associated with trismus-pseudocamptodactyly syndrome, also called arthrogryposis, distal, 7 (DA7) (Veugelers et al., 2004). This condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant (AD) fashion and is associated with congenital joint contractures.
Changes in this gene were also identified in a UDN participant. Clinicians and researchers do not believe trismus-pseudocamptodactyly syndrome is the explanation for the participant’s presentation, therefore research is still underway.
