Targeted gene under study:

OMIM * 60790


Recently, biallelic variants in SNUPN have been related with a new disorder mainly characterised by a muscular dystrophy with contractures and protein aggregates in muscle biopsy. We aim to continue studying and expanding SNUPN-related disorders through phenotypical and genetic characterisation as well as completing additional functional studies to understand the underlying mechanism. We plan to collect clinical, genetical, imaging and histological data of these patients and, when available, to collect patients’ derived samples as fibroblasts or muscle.
