GABRBeta3 expression variation and the autism spectrum  

Linkage between autism and GABRB3, the dominant beta subunit of GABAA-receptors in differentiating cortical neurons, is enhanced using subgroups of patients exhibiting higher-level repetitive behaviors. These analyses will define the role of variation of the autism candidate gene GABRB3 in neurodevelopment and in specific features of autism such as perseveration and social intelligence, which will lead to greater insight into the etiology and treatment of autism and autism spectrum disorders.
