New study finds the clue for autism may lie in missing genes

As per a recent study findings people suffering from autism only have one copy of some particular genes in comparison to normal people who have two.

The study was done by US researchers who say that they have been successful in finding out a new piece of the autism riddle.

Facts suggest that every one in 100 children suffers from autism. It is also a disorder which is genetically influenced and if someone in the family has autism there are chances that more people to suffer from the same syndrome but researchers have not been able to find out the precise reason for this.

A professor from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, Professor Joseph Buxbaum, studied the case by comparing the genetic makeup of 431 people with autism spectrum disorder with another 329 without the disorder and discovered that those who did not have some particular genes could have some abnormal nerve set-up in the brain causing autism.

Gene erasures and increments happen in every living soul, which demonstrates why we are distinctive. Be that as it may this study demonstrated there were significantly more gene cancellations in the assembly with a mental imbalance.

Professor Buxbaum said, "This is the first uncovering that little erasures affecting one or two genes give off an impression of being normal in a mental imbalance, and that these cancellations help danger of improvement of this issue."
