Piezo-type mechanosensitive ion channel component 1
The PIEZO1 gene codes for a protein that induces mechanically activiated currents in various cell types (Coste et al., 2010).
Two variants of uncertain significance in this gene were identified in a UDN participant.
Of note: The protein coded for by this gene was not found to be defective.
