Prof. Illana Gozes: Overlap in mutations related to Autism and Alzheimer’s was found

Research led by Israeli researchers has found overlap between hundreds of genetic mutations that characterize children with autism and developmental intellectual disabilities, and mutations in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. The researchers focused on mutations in the gene called ADNP, which was discovered a few years ago as having an important role in brain development and in protecting the structure of nerve cells in the brain.
