A team of researchers from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical campus have found that there is a laargely hidden part of human genome that has a noted impact to the severity of autism.
The scientist think that this new study will improve the research for to develop effective medicine for autism related problems.
The critical genes,which are a part of the genome has a complex and difficult array and thus it is evidently difficult to analyse that.For to study the genome,the region consisting of Olduvai protein domain the highly duplicated and highly variable gene coding part for cognitive and brain functioning must be analysed.
The researchers led by James Sikela,PhD a professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics at the CU school of Medicine analysed the genomes of individuals with autism,and showed that as the number of Olduvai increases ,there are more chances for autism.
“We hope that by showing that the link with autism severity holds up in three independent studies,we will prompt other autism researchers to examine this complex family”he said.
The researchers used an independent population and developed a different ,higher resolution measurement technique.
