X marks the spot: TBL1X gene involved in autism spectrum disorder

X marks the spot: TBL1X gene involved in autism spectrum disorder.

Well this is exciting news!

New research published in BioMed Central’s open access journal Molecular Autism used genome wide association study (GWAS) data to find a variation in the gene for transducin ß-like 1X-linked (TBL1X) which is associated with increased risk of ASD in boys.

Hopefully the study can be corroborated.
