Autistic disorder (AD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by abnormalities in behavior, communication, and social interactions and functioning. Recently, Cook et al. reported significant linkage disequilibrium with an AD susceptibility locus and a marker, GABRB3 155CA-2, in the gamma-aminobutyric acid(A) (GABA(A)) receptor beta3-subunit gene on(More)
Autistic disorder (AD) is a developmental disorder affecting social interactions, communication, and behavior. AD is a disease of complex genetic architecture. It is postulated that several genes contribute to the underlying etiology of AD. Chromosome 15 is of particular interest due to numerous reports of AD in the presence of chromosomal abnormalities,(More)
Autistic disorder (AD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects approximately 2-10/10,000 individuals. Chromosome 15q11-q13 has been implicated in the genetic etiology of AD based on (1) cytogenetic abnormalities; (2) increased recombination frequency in this region in AD versus non-AD families; (3) suggested linkage with markers D15S156, D15S219, and(More)
