Several papers documenting the MAPK8IP3* gene variant in humans were recently published in 2019 which led to it classified as a pathogenic variant. In addition, researchers have studied the corresponding MAPK8IP3 gene/protein in various animal models. While this is not an exhaustive list, we have tried to include as many applicable papers as possible. If you are researching the MAPK8IP3 gene variant in human or animal models and would like your paper included here, please contact us.
