SPT6 homolog, histone chaperone and transcription elongation factor
The SUPT6H gene is a homologue to the SPT6 gene in yeast. It is assumed that it has similar functioning to the SPT6 gene, which regulates transcription and helps maintain chromatin structure (Chiang et al., 1996).
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.
