Transcript of Uner Tan Syndrome

Testing and Screening
If someone in your family gets Uner Tan Syndrome all members of your family should be tested with a MRI or a cat scan.
When the results of your test come back the scientist will look at your cerebellum(a little portion of the bottom of your brain.) if your cerebellum is shrunken you have the Uner Tan Syndrome.
Some Scientists believe that just not one mutation causes this syndrome but multiple mutations do.
The mutations will shrink the tissue in the cerebellum which causes the mental retardation.
Scientists believe that Uner Tan syndrome is like the human evolution backwards.
When people try to run with this syndrome they tend to gallop kind of like a horse does.
Some parents actually have their kids go into surgery to have their legs removed if their child has this syndrome.
Autosomal recessive gene.
You can only get this gene within your family.But this only happens if your family members were close relatives and get married then had kids.
Assuming that a autosomal recessive transmission may be responsible for this syndrome.
