On this page, you will find information about genetic changes that were 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.
Changes in the PTER gene were identified in a 1-year-old male with abnormal white matter of the brain (leukodystrophy), global developmental delay, abnormal brain electrical activity, and eye abnormalities (visual impairment, optic atrophy, esotropia) (read full description).

The PTER gene codes for an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphotriester molecules (Alimova-Kost et al., 1998).
Changes in this gene were identified in a UDN participant. Research is underway to see if these changes are causing symptoms in this participant.
