Below is a summary for the TCF20 gene observed in research publications. This is not meant to take the place of medical advice.
What is TCF20-related Syndrome?
TCF20-related syndrome happens when there are changes to the TCF20 gene. These changes can keep the gene from working as it should.
The TCF20 gene plays a key role in the development of brain cells. It also controls other genes that help guide brain development.
Because the TCF20 gene is important in brain development, many people who have TCF20-related syndrome have:
• Intellectual disability
Do people who have TCF20-related syndrome look different?
People who have TCF20-related syndrome may look different. Some people have a condition called craniosynostosis, in which some parts of the skull join too early. This can cause changes to the skull or facial bones.
