ring finger protein 13
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).
A change in this gene was identified in a UDN participant. Research is underway to see if this change is causing symptoms in this participant.
Changes in this gene have also been associated with Epileptic encephalopathy, early infantile, 73 (OMIM 618379).
