Summaries for Wilson-Turner Syndrome

About this section
Disease Ontology:11 A syndromic X-linked intellectual disability characterized by intellectual disability, truncal obesity, gynecomastia, hypogonadism, dysmorphic facial features, and short stature that has material basis in hemizygous mutation in the LAS1L gene (300964) on chromosome Xq12.

MalaCards based summary: Wilson-Turner Syndrome, also known as wts, is related to wt limb-blood syndrome and mental retardation, x-linked, syndromic, wilson-turner type, and has symptoms including obesity, gynecomastia and neurological speech impairment. An important gene associated with Wilson-Turner Syndrome is LAS1L (LAS1 Like, Ribosome Biogenesis Factor). Affiliated tissues include skin and eye.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:70 Wilson-Turner X-linked mental retardation syndrome: A neurologic disorder characterized by severe intellectual disability, dysmorphic facial features, hypogonadism, short stature, and truncal obesity. Affected females have a milder phenotype than affected males.
