Some genes linked to autism regulate the production of proteins at neuronal junctions, suggesting that disrupted protein synthesis contributes to the condition.
A large study of minute mutations in people with developmental conditions, including autism, has uncovered 200 potential risk genes.
People with autism aren’t easily surprised, the social camouflage some girls and women with autism use may preclude diagnosis, and autism-related genes are rooted deep in human ancestry.
A Tampa clinic goes rogue with fecal transplants, autism’s genetic ancestry traces to our deep past, and the U.S. Supreme Court revives the travel ban.
Paternal age drives ‘geek index’ scores, GWAS may have a big weakness, serotonin boosts mouse social behaviors, and what is science Tinder?
The landscape of chemical modifications on the DNA of people with autism could reveal clues to the condition and lead to treatments.
Variants of some mitochondrial genes may contribute to autism — in some cases, by teaming up with genes in the nucleus.
Teasing out how genes interact can offer clues to autism’s causes and point to treatment targets.
