Associations between single-nucleotide polymorphism in the FNDC3A and autism spectrum disorder in a Korean population.


PMID 23639254

Abstract

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental syndrome associated with impairments of reciprocal communication and cognitive function. Associations between single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and ASD were analysed by logistic regression. Polymorphisms in fibronectin type III domain-containing 3A (FNDC3A) exhibited significant associations in genotype and diplotype analyses. We conclude that FNDC3A influences the prevalence of ASD.
