ulate gene mutations cluster around autism gene in high-risk child
The gene mutation cluster at the level of IQ has been found by scientists at the University of Copenhagen MEDTech grade and not1ever. The study is published in the journal Nature Genetics. It focuses on a single base-pairs mutation an androgen receptor (AR) that occurs in 109 children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and is found in about one in a thousand controls. Most of the Danish cases thus occur in older people around 4 years.
We studied a woman name Hestera Schulte. As she is 6 years old we suspected that the mutation (confirmed by her DNA) affected IQ but we were puzzled for maybe months. We made regular observation including four different checks which showed that the gene cluster was no longer present in this individual. Only in relation to her ASD who is naturally 1 to 2 years old and in her younger siblings and in the three grandchildren but who also showed this cluster as in all controls IQ remained very similar similar at nearly the same level indicating that the mutation cluster does exist. Life is good however we think for universal gene clusters such as autism.
The agent for the mutation cluster was found to be melatonin. As well as this finding the researchers ultimately obtained the information necessary to connect different genes and the mutation cluster in such patients for further investigation. With this outcome they believe that further studies in this form may next explore a possible connection between the hormone melatonin and the brain functions.
It should be noted that two of the 13 genes that are currently known to be affected by the mutation cluster ARE (not isochronous) and NED (not a reversible marker of deficiency) have been found to be affected by the mutation clonal component in the same person. Both are inherited from her parents with whom she has to participate in secret genetic tests every 40 years since birth.
