Epigenetics and Autism

Review, Article English OPEN
Mbadiwe, Tafari; Millis, Richard M.;

This review identifies mechanisms for altering DNA-histone interactions of cell chromatin to upregulate or downregulate gene expression that could serve as epigenetic targets for therapeutic interventions in autism. DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs) can phosphorylate histo... View more
