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.

A change in this gene was identified in a female, age 2 with an undiagnosed condition (read full description).

Date of Report

Apr 25, 2016

Full Name

Zinc finger and BTB domain containing 24

Chromosome 6 (6q21)


The ZBTB24 gene codes for a protein that seems to be involved in DNA methylation of juxtacentromeric DNA during B-cell development (de Greef et al., 2011 ).

Clinical Significance

A change in this gene was identified in a UDN participant. The participant was found to carry a single copy of the following genetic variant; a second variant was not detected, as expected for autosomal recessive inheritance. Research is underway to see if this change is causing symptoms in this participant.
