Abnormalities (duplications and deletions) of chromosome 15q have been implicated in autism. In
cases, the deletions or duplications have occurred on the chromosome inherited from the mother (Boyar FZ et al, 2001; Bolton PF et al, 2001;
Cook EH et al. 1997; Schroer RJ et al. 1998;
Repetto GM et al. 1998; Woods CG et al Am J Hum Genet 1997;61:A117;
Autism Genome Project Consortium, 2007).
Transmission disequilibrium tests between autism and SNPs within
ATP10A showed evidence of
Three SNPs showed maternal-specific transmission whereas one showed paternal specific transmission (Nurmi EL et al. 2003).
