BTBD9 is a human gene.

There is some evidence that it may be associated with restless legs syndrome.[1]

Synaptic Plasticity

Recent evidence using Btbd9 knockout mice argue that BTBD9 is involved in synaptic plasticity, learning and memory, and protein alterations associated with vesicle recycling and endocytosis.[2]
