WNK lysine deficient protein kinase 1
The WNK1 gene codes for a serine/threonine protein kinase (Xu et al., 2000).
Changes in this gene have been found in individuals with hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy II and pseudohypoaldosteronism type IIC.
A change in this gene was also identified in a UDN participant. Research is underway to see if this change is causing symptoms in this participant.
