    I was looking at this gene as it maybe related to my rare genetic condition and was wondering if it could be important for ME/cfs.The GJ bit means Gap Junction and then connexin protein I think of which there are many types this one is related to the heart and might be important for those with POTS.Ive not seen gap junctions and connexins mentioned much I wonder if its worth looking at

    Do you have a SNP# or RS#?

    This is my very rare 1 in 200,000 genetic disorder http://www.malacards.org/card/axenfeld_rieger_syndrome.There are many interesting things about it and I wonder if it may hold clues for autism and ME/cfs as many people with it report fatigue states from wondering if they have MS to fibromyalgia to childhood severe fatigue,it mentions vid D,Glutamate and Doxycycline maybe that's to do with microglial activation.Leukemia,prostate and Breast cancer are all loosely linked to it too.Connexins are important in the heart eyes and brain
