The YWHAG Research Foundation seeks to raise awareness and educate the public on the YWHAG genetic mutation, while supporting the families affected by this mutation.
Your donation allows us to support research and development of treatments, while seeking a cure for YWHAG genetic mutation. Your involvement is critical to our success. Thank you for your support.
YWHAG genetic mutation is a rare neurological disorder that affects a small but growing number of children and adults worldwide. This gene provides instructions for making a protein called 14-3-3 gamma-- it is highly expressed in the brain and plays a critical role in a wide range of cellular processes including signal transduction, cell cycle regulation, and protein trafficking. The genetic mutation alters the structure and function of 14-3-3 gamma protein.
Symptoms and severity vary among patients, including seizures, developmental delays, behavioral issues and more. Early involvement is crucial to help give children a chance to develop normally.
