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 PEX7 gene was identified in a male, age 10, with seizures, structural brain abnormalities, and global developmental delay (read full description).

Date of Report

Full Name

Peroxisomal Biogenesis Factor 7

Chromosome 6 (6q23.3)


The PEX7 gene encodes for a protein that is part of a class of proteins known as peroxisomal assembly proteins (PEX), which are involved in transporting other specific proteins such as alkylglycerone phosphate synthase and phytanoyl-CoA hydroxylase into peroxisomes (MedlinePlus).
