Autism 17

Common Name(s)

Autism 17

Autism, the prototypic pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), is usually apparent by 3 years of age. It is characterized by a triad of limited or absent verbal communication, a lack of reciprocal social interaction or responsiveness, and restricted, stereotypic, and ritualized patterns of interests and behavior ({1:Bailey et al., 1996}; {4:Risch et al., 1999}). 'Autism spectrum disorder,' sometimes referred to as ASD, is a broader phenotype encompassing the less severe disorders Asperger syndrome (see ASPG1; {608638}) and pervasive developmental disorder, not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS). 'Broad autism phenotype' includes individuals with some symptoms of autism, but who do not meet the full criteria for autism or other disorders. Mental retardation coexists in approximately two-thirds of individuals with ASD, except for Asperger syndrome, in which mental retardation is conspicuously absent ({3:Jones et al., 2008}). Genetic studies in autism often include family members with these less stringent diagnoses ({5:Schellenberg et al., 2006}). For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of autism, see {209850}.

Increased production of IL-17 in children with autism spectrum disorders and co-morbid asthma.
 

Author(s): Marjannie Eloi Akintunde, Melissa Rose, Paula Krakowiak, Luke Heuer, Paul Ashwood, Robin Hansen, Irva Hertz-Picciotto, Judy Van de Water

Journal: J. Neuroimmunol.. 2015 Sep;286():33-41.

 

Inflammation and asthma have both been reported in some children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). To further assess this connection, peripheral immune cells isolated from young children with ASD and typically developing (TD) controls and the production of cytokines IL-17, -13, ...

Decreased cellular IL-23 but not IL-17 production in children with autism spectrum disorders.
 

Author(s): Charity Onore, Amanda Enstrom, Paula Krakowiak, Irva Hertz-Picciotto, Robin Hansen, Judy Van de Water, Paul Ashwood

Journal: J. Neuroimmunol.. 2009 Nov;216(1-2):126-9.

 

A potential role for T(H)17 cells has been suggested in a number of conditions including neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorders (ASD). In the current study, we investigated cellular release of IL-17 and IL-23 following an in-vitro immunological challenge of ...

High density SNP association study of a major autism linkage region on chromosome 17.
 

Author(s): Jennifer L Stone, Barry Merriman, Rita M Cantor, Daniel H Geschwind, Stanley F Nelson

Journal: Hum. Mol. Genet.. 2007 Mar;16(6):704-15.

 

A region on chromosome 17 has recently been highlighted as linked to autism (MIM[209850]) in multiple studies and evidence has accumulated suggesting that male-only families (those families that have produced only affected males) provide the major contribution to linkage at this locus. ...
