Getting to the Cores of Autism.
Iakoucheva Lilia M et al. Cell 2019 Sep (6) 1287-1298 (Posted: Sep-08-2019 2PM)

The genetic architecture of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is itself a diverse allelic spectrum that consists of rare de novo or inherited variants in hundreds of genes and common polygenic risk at thousands of loci. ASD susceptibility genes are interconnected in transcriptional and protein networks, and many function as genetic regulators of neurodevelopment.

If a child is diagnosed with ASD, medical evaluation can determine whether co-occurring conditions, such as sensory motor difficulties, hearing problems, gastrointestinal symptoms, or seizures, are present. Genetic screening may identify known genetic syndromes that are associated with autism (eg, fragile X syndrome.

Decades of research have implicated both genetic and environmental risk factors for autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, only in recent years have population-based studies been able to place risk in a broader context, allowing the relative influence of these factors on ASD liability to be better estimated.
