RGD uses the Human Disease Ontology (DO, for disease curation across species. RGD automatically downloads each new release of the ontology on a monthly basis. Some additional terms which are required for RGD's curation purposes but are not currently covered in the official version of DO have been added. As corresponding terms are added to DO, these custom terms are retired and the DO terms substituted in existing annotations and subsequently used for curation.

Definition:A syndrome that has_material_basis_in mutation at is in the gene encoding the monocarboxylate transporter-8 which alters the structure and function of the SLC16A2 protein which is then unable to transport the thyroid triiodothyronine (T3) hormone into nerve cells of the developing brain affecting normal brain development resulting in intellectual disability and problems with movement.
