ADNP and SHANK3 proteins may bind together and alter a neuron’s internal scaffold, hinting at a mechanism that, when disrupted, may underlie several forms of autism.

Scientists have at last filled in the missing gaps — an advance likely to inform every aspect of autism genetics research, Eichler says.
Misaligned gene expression maps suggest that some autism-linked genes play distinct roles in mouse and human brains.
Researchers expand on the already enormous progress made on the Human Proteome Project
An analysis of four molecular datasets shows a distinct signature, including changes in gene expression and chemical DNA modifications, in some autism brains.
Researchers have identified a distinctive pattern of gene expression in the white blood cells of young autistic boys.
Studying Smith-Magenis and Potocki-Lupski syndromes — two single-gene conditions in which people have trouble reading social cues — may boost our understanding of autism.
Advances in research and help from families have brought scientists to the brink of an effective therapy for Angelman syndrome.
