What is KCNT1?

KCNT1, a gene primarily associated with two distinct genetic epilepsy syndromes, namely Migrating Partial Seizures of Infancy (MPSI) and Autosomal Dominant Nocturnal Frontal Lobe Epilepsy (ADNFLE). Ever since its discovery in 2012, KCNT1 mutations are increasingly recognized in severe, early onset epilepsies.

Of the 65 million people living with epilepsy worldwide, a significant number have a rare form of epilepsy.

Though each syndrome is different, people living with rare epilepsies share many common seizure types, symptoms and side effects. However, because each syndrome's population is small in size, highly specialized rare epilepsy care is not readily available to every person who needs it.
