Below, we have summarized research articles about changes in the DST gene. We hope you find this information helpful.
The information available about DST 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.
Full versions of published research articles can be found on PubMed. PubMed is a National Institutes of Health (NIH) online database that is free. It has a collection of both medical and scientific research articles. A PubMed search for DST articles can be found here.
You can also visit the Simons Foundation’s SFARI Gene website to see information for researchers about this gene.
