Explore Associated Targets
Mondo Description An autosomal recessive condition caused by mutation(s) in the CNTNAP2 gene, encoding contactin-associated protein-like 2. It is characterized by normal development until the onset of intractable focal seizures at age 1-9. After the onset of seizures, language regression, intellectual disability, hyperactivity, and impulsive behaviors begin to occur. The majority of children eventually fulfill the criteria for autism spectrum disorder.
Uniprot Description A syndrome characterized by severe mental retardation and variable additional symptoms, such as impaired speech development, seizures, autistic behavior, breathing anomalies and a broad mouth, resembling Pitt-Hopkins syndrome. In contrast to patients with Pitt-Hopkins syndrome, PTHSL1 patients present with normal or only mildly to moderately delayed motor milestones.
