The region containing ROBO1 (Chromosome 3p12.3) has been implicated as a susceptibility gene for reading disorder and language deficit by translocation and linkage data. No association studies have yet been reported supporting any candidate gene. Here we report the first association of this gene with language deficits, specifically with phonological buffer deficits (a phenotype implicated in language acquisition, Specific Language Impairment and Speech Sound Disorder) and dyslexia (reading and… Expand
Association of the ROBO1 gene with reading disabilities in a family‐based analysis
TLDR
Previous associations between ROBO1 and RD, as well as correlation with low gene expression, are supported, suggesting a possible mechanism of risk conferred by this gene. Expand
KIAA0319 and ROBO1: evidence on association with reading and pleiotropic effects on language and mathematics abilities in developmental dyslexia
TLDR
The role of eight single-nucleotide polymorphisms spanning within KIAA0319 and ROBO1 genes, and DD as a dichotomic trait, related neuropsychological phenotypes and comorbid language and mathematical (dis)abilities in a large cohort of 493 Italian nuclear families ascertained through a proband with a diagnosis of DD are explored. Expand
The Dyslexia Candidate Locus on 2p12 Is Associated with General Cognitive Ability and White Matter Structure
TLDR
The findings suggest that the MRPL19/C2ORF3 locus, originally identified as being associated with dyslexia, is likely to harbour genetic variants associated with general cognitive abilities by influencing white matter structure in localised neuronal regions. Expand
Genome-wide association scan identifies new variants associated with a cognitive predictor of dyslexia
TLDR
A genome-wide association study of reading-impaired and typically developing children of European ancestry and polygenic risk score (PRS) analysis revealed significant genetic overlaps of some of the DD-related traits with educational attainment (EDUyears) and ADHD. Expand
The Influence of Dyslexia Candidate Genes on Reading Skill in Old Age
TLDR
It is suggested that reading skill in normal adults shares the same genetic substrate as reading in adolescents, and clinically disordered reading, and highlights the utility of adult samples to increase sample sizes in the genetic study of developmental disorders. Expand
Language Impairment and Dyslexia Genes Influence Language Skills in Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • J. Eicher, J. Gruen
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Autism research : official journal of the International Society for Autism Research
  • 2015
TLDR
It is shown that LI and dyslexia genes also contribute to language traits in children with ASD, and these associations add to the growing literature of generalist genes that contribute to multiple related neurobehavioral traits. Expand
Genome Wide Association Scan identifies new variants associated with a cognitive predictor of dyslexia
TLDR
A genome-wide significant effect is observed on rapid automatized naming of letters (RANlet) for variants on 18q12.2 within MIR924HG (micro-RNA 924 host gene; p = 4.73×10−9), and new candidate DD susceptibility genes are suggested. Expand
Common variation near ROBO2 is associated with expressive vocabulary in infancy
TLDR
A genome-wide screen and follow-up study of expressive vocabulary in toddlers of European descent from up to four studies of the EArly Genetics and Lifecourse Epidemiology consortium links language-related common genetic variation in the general population to a potential autism susceptibility locus and a linkage region for dyslexia, speech-sound disorder and reading.

Molecular studies of dyslexia : regulation and function of DYX1C1
TLDR
It is concluded that DYX1C1 is involved in several interesting molecular pathways and provided starting points for future studies and strengthen and further develop some of the already existing hypothesis of the biological causes of dyslexia. Expand
Lack of association between genetic polymorphisms in ROBO1, MRPL19/C2ORF3 and THEM2 with developmental dyslexia.
TLDR
This study failed to show any association of SNPs and haplotypes of these genes with DD in an Indian population. Expand

Dyslexia and DYX1C1: deficits in reading and spelling associated with a missense mutation
TLDR
The results suggest that DYX1C1 influences reading and spelling ability with additional effects on short-term information storage or rehearsal, and Missense mutation rs17819126 is a potential functional basis for the association of DYx1 C1 with dyslexia. Expand
Dyslexia and DCDC2: normal variation in reading and spelling is associated with DCDC2 polymorphisms in an Australian population sample
TLDR
Support is provided for DCDC2 as a risk gene for reading disorder, and it is suggested that this risk factor acts on normally varying reading skill in the general population. Expand

The FOXP2-CNTNAP2 pathway provides a mechanistic link between clinically distinct syndromes involving disrupted language, and is found to be associated with language delays in children with autism. Expand
Association of the KIAA0319 dyslexia susceptibility gene with reading skills in the general population.
TLDR
A role of the KIAA0319 gene in the development of dyslexia is supported and the data implicate the three-SNP haplotype and its tagging SNP rs2143340 as genetic risk factors for poor reading performance. Expand

A dominant gene for developmental dyslexia on chromosome 3
TLDR
A novel dominant locus linked to dyslexia in the pericentromeric region of chromosome 3 with a multipoint lod score of 3.84 is associated with deficits in all three essential components involved in the reading process, namely phonological awareness, rapid naming, and verbal short term memory.

FOXP2 is not a major susceptibility gene for autism or specific language impairment.

It is concluded that coding-region variants in FOXP2 do not underlie the AUTS1 linkage and that the gene is unlikely to play a role in autism or more common forms of language impairment. Expand

TLDR
Results suggest that a multilocus effect in or near KIAA0319 may influence variation in reading ability, which is in the opposite direction to that previously reported. Expand
