What is CSNK2B-related syndrome?
CSNK2B-related syndrome happens when there are changes to the CSNK2B gene. These changes can keep the gene from working as it should. CSNK2B-related syndrome is also called Poirier-Bienvenu neurodevelopmental syndrome.
The CSNK2B protein interacts with CSNK2A1, which is another Simons Searchlight gene.
CSNK2B plays an important role in brain function.
Because the CSNK2B gene is important in the development and function of brain cells, many people who have CSNK2B-related syndrome have:
- Intellectual disability
- Speech issues
- A history of seizures
- A diagnosis of epilepsy
Do people with CSNK2B-related syndrome look different?
People who have CSNK2B-related syndrome may look different, but the specific set of features are unclear.
