R.; Reynolds, J.; Chen, M.; Grebe, T.; Minard, C. G.; Stankiewicz, P.; Beaudet, A. L.; Schaaf, C. P. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2017
Chromosome 15q11q13 is among the least stable regions in the genome due to its highly complex genomic architecture. Low copy repeat elements at 15q13.3 facilitate recurrent copy number variants (CNVs), with deletions established as pathogenic and "CHRNA7" implicated as a candidate gene. However, the pathogenicity of duplications of…

Research on sex-related differences in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has been impeded by small samples. We pooled 28 datasets from 18 sites across nine European countries to examine sex differences in the ASD phenotype on the ADI-R (376 females, 1763 males) and ADOS (233 females, 1187 males). On the ADI-R, early childhood restricted and…
