Hindbrain dysgenesis in Rett syndrome and other autism spectrum disorders  

The aim of this proposal is to investigate whether EGR2 and Hoxa1 are part of a regulatory gene network which impacts the RTT and autism phenotypes. Elucidating gene expression networks for MeCP2 targets and MeCP2 regulators may aid in the earlier diagnosis and treatment of this devastating class of neurodevelopmental disorders.
