GeneReviews

Gene Reviews are a great resource to bring to your child’s clinicians. These publications provide a summary of current research on genetic conditions and information on ongoing care.

ANK2 gene changes are known to be associated with LQTS (the GeneReviews linked here). Long QT syndrome caused by the ANK2 gene change is known as Long QT 4.

Check out the GeneReviews for LQTS.

Research Article Summaries

We currently do not have any article summaries for ANK2, but we add resources to our website as they become available.

The information available about ANK2 is limited, and families and doctors share a critical need for more information. As we learn more from children who have a change in this gene, we expect this list of resources and information to grow.

You can also visit the Simons Foundation ’s SFARI Gene website to see information for researchers about this gene.
