ASH1L

Below is a summary for the ASH1L gene observed in research publications. This is not meant to take the place of medical advice.

What is ASH1L-related syndrome?

ASH1L-related syndrome happens when there are changes to the ASH1L gene. These changes can keep the gene from working as it should.

Key Role

The ASH1L gene plays a key role in brain development. It controls the activity of other genes.

Symptoms

ASH1L-related syndrome can have mild to severe effects on the development of communication, social, and learning skills. Because the ASH1L gene is important in the development of brain cells, many people who have ASH1L-related syndrome have:

  • Speech delay
  • Intellectual disability
  • Learning difficulties

Do people who have ASH1L-related syndrome look different?

People who have ASH1L-related syndrome generally do not look very different from others.

GeneReviews

GeneReviews 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.

There is currently no GeneReviews for ASH1L.

Research Article Summaries

Below, we have summarized research articles about changes in the ASH1L gene. We hope you find this information helpful.

The information available about ASH1L 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.
