Copy Number Variants in Extended Autism Spectrum Disorder Families Reveal Candidates Potentially Involved in Autism Risk
TLDR
Findings provide further evidence for the involvement of ICA1 and NXPH1 on 7p21.3 in ASD susceptibility and highlight novel ASD candidates, including CHL1, FGFBP3 and POUF41, which highlight the power of using extended families for gene discovery in traits with a complex etiology.

TLDR
It is concluded that rare CNVs, encompassing potential candidate regions for ASDs, increase the susceptibility for the development of ASDs and related neuropsychiatric disorders giving us further insight into the complex genetics underlying ASDs.
Integrative Variation Analysis Reveals that a Complex Genotype May Specify Phenotype in Siblings with Syndromic Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
The integrative network analysis showed that the siblings’ shared translocation could explain their similar syndromic phenotype, including overgrowth, macrocephaly, and intellectual disability, and shows the importance of using an integrative approach to explore genotype-phenotype variability.
Association of Copy Number Variations in Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Systematic Review
TLDR
This review emphasizes the major CNVs reported to date in ASD and reveals that submicroscopic CNVs can have a role in ASD, and de novo CNVs seem to be a more common risk factor in sporadic compared with inherited forms of ASD.
Detection of clinically relevant genetic variants in autism spectrum disorder by whole-genome sequencing.
Tourette syndrome is associated with recurrent exonic copy number variants
TLDR
Rare, recurrent exonic copy number variants are associated in a subset of patients with Tourette syndrome, suggesting that these CNVs produce a continuum of neuropsychiatric disturbances that manifest in different ways depending on other genetic, environmental, or stochastic factors.
Whole genome sequencing resource identifies 18 new candidate genes for autism spectrum disorder
TLDR
Se sequencing of 5,205 samples from families with ASD, accompanied by clinical information, creating a database accessible on a cloud platform and through a controlled-access internet portal that identified 18 new candidate ASD-risk genes and found that participants bearing mutations in susceptibility genes had significantly lower adaptive ability.
Genome-wide copy number variation analysis in a Chinese autism spectrum disorder cohort
TLDR
This study identifies ASD-related CNVs in a Chinese population and implicate novel ASD risk genes and related pathway for further study, and implicated Contactins-NYAPs-WAVE1 pathway in ASD pathogenesis.
Sub-microscopic chromosomal imbalances in idiopathic autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
TLDR
In this study, nineteen probands with a confirmed diagnosis of nonsyndromic ASD and additional complex phenotypic features with normal karyotype/Fragile X screening were evaluated for submicroscopic genomic imbalances using a commercially available 1Mb BAC microarray platform (Spectral Genomics).
Autism genome-wide copy number variation reveals ubiquitin and neuronal genes
TLDR
Several new susceptibility genes encoding neuronal cell-adhesion molecules, including NLGN1 and ASTN2, were enriched with CNVs in ASD cases compared to controls, and duplications 55 kilobases upstream of complementary DNA AK123120 indicate that these two important gene networks expressed within the central nervous system may contribute to the genetic susceptibility of ASD.

Strong Association of De Novo Copy Number Mutations with Autism
TLDR
Findings establish de novo germline mutation as a more significant risk factor for ASD than previously recognized.
Array-based comparative genomic hybridisation identifies high frequency of cryptic chromosomal rearrangements in patients with syndromic autism spectrum disorders
TLDR
Results clearly show that array comparative genomic hybridisation should be considered to be an essential aspect of the genetic analysis of patients with syndromic ASD, and may allow the delineation of new contiguous gene syndromes associated with ASD.
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.
Mapping autism risk loci using genetic linkage and chromosomal rearrangements
TLDR
Linkage and copy number variation analyses implicate chromosome 11p12–p13 and neurexins, respectively, among other candidate loci, highlighting glutamate-related genes as promising candidates for contributing to ASDs.
Presence of large deletions in kindreds with autism.
TLDR
Segregation patterns of short tandem repeat polymorphic markers from four chromosomes revealed null alleles at four marker sites in 12 families that were the result of deletions ranging in size from 5 to >260 kb, which appear to be specific to autism kindreds and are potential autism-susceptibility alleles.
Autism as a paradigmatic complex genetic disorder.
TLDR
It is essential that the restricted interests of patients with autism not be reflected in overly restrictive genetic approaches if the authors are to better understand the genetics of autism in the most expeditious and thorough manner.
Contribution of SHANK3 mutations to autism spectrum disorder.
TLDR
The combined data provide support that haploinsufficiency of SHANK3 can cause a monogenic form of autism in sufficient frequency to warrant consideration in clinical diagnostic testing.
Identification of novel autism candidate regions through analysis of reported cytogenetic abnormalities associated with autism
TLDR
This analysis not only has confirmed the presence of several known autism risk regions but has also revealed additional previously unidentified loci, including 2q37, 5p15, 11q25, 16q22.3, 17p11.1, 18q23, 22q11.3 and Xp22.2–p 22.3.
Copy-number variation in control population cohorts.
TLDR
An example of how to discover new CNVs from existing genotype data from large-scale genetic epidemiological studies is provided and the need to expand surveys of CNV in different population-based cohorts and to apply the information to studies of human variation and disease is discussed.
Global variation in copy number in the human genome
TLDR
A first-generation CNV map of the human genome is constructed through the study of 270 individuals from four populations with ancestry in Europe, Africa or Asia, underscoring the importance of CNV in genetic diversity and evolution and the utility of this resource for genetic disease studies.
