Significant overlap found between Alzheimer’s-related mutations and those producing autism and related intellectual disabilities, TAU researchers say Researchers believe that autism is caused by mutations that occur sporadically in the egg or sperm or during pregnancy. Activity-dependent neuroprotective protein (ADNP) is a dominant gene whose de novo (during pregnancy) mutations are known to
