What is PPP2R5C-related syndrome?

PPP2R5C-related syndrome happens when there are changes in the PPP2R5C gene. These changes can keep the gene from working as it should.

Key Role

The PPP2R5C gene plays an important role in the development and function of brain cells.


Because the PPP2R5C gene is important for the brain, people who have PPP2R5C-related syndrome might have:

  • Intellectual disability

How many people have PPP2R5C-related syndrome?

As of 2024, at least 2 people with PPP2R5C-related syndrome have been identified in a medical clinic.

Support Resources



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 are currently no GeneReviews for PPP2R5C.


Research Articles and References

Below, we have summarized research articles about changes in the PPP2R5C gene. We hope you find this information helpful.

The information available about PPP2R5C 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 PPP2R5C articles can be found here.
