Le basi genetiche della schizofrenia danno alcune indicazioni sull'autismo

Le basi genetiche della schizofrenia danno alcune indicazioni sull'autismo | Med News | Scoop.it

> Using an unbiased collection of hundreds of mutations associated with schizophrenia, the Columbia researchers applied a sophisticated computational approach to uncover hidden relationships among seemingly unrelated genes.

 

The program uncovered two genetic networks. Genes in the first network are involved primarily in axon guidance, synapse function, and cell migration. Genes in the second network are involved in chromosomal organization and remodeling. Parts of both networks are highly active during prenatal development, suggesting that changes in the brain that cause schizophrenia later in life are laid down very early in life.

 

The study also uncovered an intriguing connection between schizophrenia and autism. <
