Brief description:  Autism spectrum disorder is a developmental disorder characterized by impaired social interactions & communication skills along with repetitive activities and limited interests. The exact genetic cause of autism is unknown, but is probably due to multigenic interactions or mutations. A small percentage of cases of autism have been linked to a mutation in the neuroligin-3 proteins. These transmembrane proteins are involved in the formation of functional synaptic junctions.
