Mutations in CUL3, a leading autism gene, may disrupt the movements of neurons during development; correcting this misdirection could lead to an autism therapy.
A new spin on the classic CRISPR gene-editing tool can alter the genome’s chemical tags and suppress gene expression for months.
Mutations in any of 10 autism-linked genes in frogs lead to the same overabundance of brain cells that develop into neurons; the sex hormone estrogen lowers this excess.
Researchers have devised a new way of seeing how gene mutations affect cells during development.
A gene-editing treatment shows long-lasting effects in a mouse model of Angelman syndrome, a genetic condition related to autism.
A gene therapy for Angelman syndrome stands at the forefront of efforts to treat autism-linked conditions that stem from single genes.
A new method that suppresses gene expression in the embryos of fish and mice may help researchers study autism genes in early development.
