What is the cause? The gene called CLN3 lies on chromosome 16 and was discovered in 1995.  CLN3 disease is inherited as an autosomal recessive disorder, which means that both chromosomes carry mutations in the CLN3 gene, and both parents are unaffected carriers.  This gene codes for a transmembrane protein.  The nerve cells cannot function as they should and symptoms develop.
