CLN6

CLN6

A gene on chromosome 15q23 that encodes a protein which may be involved in the breakdown of post-translationally modified proteins in lysosomes.

Molecular pathology
CLN6 mutations have been linked to Kufs disease, a type of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses.

We are on track to meet or exceed all of our key strategic priorities for the year - continued success for Galafold, tremendous momentum in our Phase 3 Pompe clinical study, positive interim Phase 1/2 clinical data for our first gene therapy for CLN6 Batten disease, and an industry leading rare disease gene therapy portfolio.
The Hollywood couple, film producer Gordon Gray and his wife, Kristen, were able to get two daughters treated at Nationwide Children's Hospital about one year after the girls were found to have Batten Cln6, an inherited nervous-system disease believed to affect just a few hundred kids.

The neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCLs) are a group of inherited neurodegenerative diseases that include infantile NCL (INCL; OMIM 256730, where the defective gene is CLN1), classical late infantile NCL (LINCL; OMIM 204500, where the defective gene is CLN2), two variant late infantile NCLs (OMIM 256731, where the defective gene is CLN5; and OMIM 601780, where the defective gene is CLN6), juvenile NCL (JNCL; OMIM 204200; defective gene, CLN3), a juvenile onset epilepsy with progressive mental retardation (EPMR; OMIM 600143; defective gene, CLN8), and adult NCL (Kufs disease; OMIM 204300; defective gene, CLN4) [reviewed in Ref.
