CYTOGENETICS OF AUTISM
TLDR
Review of literature reveals abnoramlity in chromosome 15 to be the most frequent occurrence on karyotyping of patient with this disorder, thought to be caused by genetic and environmental factors.
Autism spectrum disorders: The quest for genetic syndromes
TLDR
This review paper critically examines the prevalence and characteristics of the main genetic syndromes, as well as the possible mechanisms for their association with ASD.
Medical conditions in autism spectrum disorders
  • P. Bolton
  • Medicine, Biology
    Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders
  • 2009
TLDR
Investigations into the causal mechanisms underlying the association between conditions such as tuberous sclerosis, Fragile X and chromosome 15 abnormalities are beginning to cast light on the molecular and neurobiological pathways involved in the pathophysiology of ASD.
Syndromic autism spectrum disorders: moving from a clinically defined to a molecularly defined approach
TLDR
The syndromic versus nonsyndromic designation should ultimately be replaced by classification of ASD according to its genetic etiology, which will inform about the associated spectrum and penetrance of neurobehavioral and somatic manifestations.
Genetic causes of developmental disorders.
TLDR
In addition to the disorders with known genetic cause that are associated with intellectual disability, autism and ADHD, an increasing number of novel recurrent structural variants are identified in association with these developmental disorders.
The Genetics of Autism Spectrum Disorders
TLDR
Three approaches to identifying genetic factors that contribute to the pathogenesis of ASDs are reviewed: common variants and genome-wide association studies (GWAS); 2) rare variants and copy number variation (CNV) studies, and 3) familial forms of autism and the role of next-generation sequencing (NGS) methods.
Neurobiología del Autismo
TLDR
A deeper neuropsychological study of autism is proposed to improve therapeutic approaches for these patients and is consistent with the pathogenetic mechanisms identified in this population.
Autism spectrum disorders: an updated guide for genetic counseling
TLDR
The current view of the genetic architecture of autism spectrum disorder is discussed, and the main associated genetic alterations, the available molecular tests and the key aspects for the genetic counseling of these families are listed.
The Genetic Architecture of Autism and Related Conditions
TLDR
Neither developmental delay nor cognitive impairment are required for an ASD diagnosis and there are several behaviors and co-morbid symptoms that relate to each of the three classical impairments.

Specific Genetic Disorders and Autism: Clinical Contribution Towards their Identification
TLDR
The concept of “syndromal autism”—autism associated with other clinical signs—should be promoted because it may help to distinguish patients who warrant a multidisciplinary approach and further investigation.
The genetics of autism.
TLDR
Significant evidence is found for multiple interacting genetic factors as the main causative determinants of autism and for interactions between multiple genes cause "idiopathic" autism but that epigenetic factors and exposure to environmental modifiers may contribute to variable expression of autism-related traits.
Molecular Cytogenetics of Autism
TLDR
It is hypothesized that there might be at least three types of autism susceptibility genes/mutations that can be specific to an individual patient or family, in a genetically isolated sub-population and a common factor shared amongst different populations.
Should Autistic Children Be Evaluated for Mitochondrial Disorders?
TLDR
Clinicians should be careful in diagnosing a mitochondrial disorder in an autistic child because it has important implications for accurate genetic counseling, prognosis, and therapy.

The neurobeachin gene is disrupted by a translocation in a patient with idiopathic autism
TLDR
In a group of 525 subjects with autism who were karyotyped and had no recognised underlying medical condition, four were found to carry such a de novo chromosomal aberration, and the identification of genes involved in autism is expected to increase the understanding of the pathogenesis of this disorder.
Genetic Susceptibility to Neurodevelopmental Disorders
  • S. Ryan
  • Psychology, Medicine
    Journal of child neurology
  • 1999
TLDR
The principles underlying these complementary approaches toCharacterization of the genetic component of susceptibility to common neurodevelopmental disorders at a molecular level should improve classification, elucidate fundamental neurobiologic mechanisms of disease, and suggest novel approaches to treatment.
Autism and Tuberous Sclerosis
  • S. Smalley
  • Psychology, Medicine

  • 1998
TLDR
Clinical features and neuroimaging investigations suggest that an abnormal TSC gene may directly influence the development of autism rather than it being a secondary effect of seizures or MR.
