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 NUBPL gene was identified in a female, age 18 with difficulty walking (gait ataxia), trembling during precise movement (intention tremor), and learning disabilities (read full description).
