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 this gene was identified in a male, age 24, with seizures, skeletal differences (Madelung deformity, scoliosis, pectus excavatum, club foot), and global developmental delay (read full description).

Date of Report

Full Name

ring finger protein 13

Chromosome 3 (3q25.1)


The RNF13 gene codes for a protein in the PA-TM-RING protein family. It associates with and promotes activation of IRE1a and is an important mediator of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress response and the apoptosis pathway (Edvardson et al., 2019).
