Snf2 related CREBBP activator protein
The SRCAP gene codes for a protein that helps to activate a gene called CREBBP. The protein produced from the CREBBP gene plays a role in regulating cell growth and division (Genetics Home Reference).
Changes in the SRCAP gene have been found in individuals with Floating Harbor syndrome.
A change in the SRCAP gene was also identified in UDN participant with features of this condition.
The participant, a 8 year old male was found to carry the following genetic change in the SRCAP gene: c.7303C>T/p.R2435X.
During the pregnancy with the patient, the patient’s mother had to use Levoxyl for Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. When the patient was born, the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck and the placenta could not be delivered. He proceeded to spend 7 days in the NICU for feeding issues.
The patient has continued to have feeding issues and suffers from acid reflux, feeding aversions, vomiting, and constipation. His bone age is also delayed by about 3 years and he started growth hormone at age 7. He also has chronic ear infections and sleep apnea.
Developmentally, the patient has some delays. He has an individualized education program (IEP) and receives vision, speech, feeding, physical and occupational therapy.
Some of his other features include:
