In brief: Williams Syndrome

The gene defects in william's syndrome are multiple - 25 genes to be exact.
This condition is created due to genes being deleted. I believe the answer you are looking for is "elastin". However, i refer you to this website: (http://ghr.Nlm.Nih.Gov/condition/williams-syndrome) for all of the details about the genetics of william's syndrome.

In brief: Elastin

1 of the 25 missing genes is the gene that produces elastin, a protein that allows the blood vessels and tissues of the body to stretch.
