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.

Ryanodine receptor 1
The RYR1 gene encodes the skeletal muscle ryanodine receptor, which serves as a calcium release channel of the sarcoplasmic reticulum as well as a bridging structure connecting the sarcoplasmic reticulum and transverse tubule (MacKenzie et al., 1990).
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.
