Genes associated with autism are surprisingly large

from Scientific American

Enzymes called topoisomerases are crucial for the expression of extremely long genes in neurons, according to a study published in Nature. More than one-quarter of these genes are known autism candidates, the study found. In the process of doing these analyses, the researchers stumbled on something surprising about autism genes in general: They're three to four times longer than the average gene expressed in neurons. more
