The in-depth approach shows mutations in the autism-linked gene disrupt neuronal growth and communication, as well as mitochondrial gene expression.
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.
