  1. 1. GENE VARIANTS IN AUTISM LINKED TO BRAIN DEVELOPMENT AND RESEARCHERS REVEAL FIRST AUTISM CANDIDATE GENE THAT DEMONSTRATES SENSITIVITY TO SEX HORMONES Lennis Bedoya Muñoz Medicine Student UPB Medellín-Colombia
  2. 6. <ul><li>GENE VARIANTS IN AUTISM LINKED TO BRAIN DEVELOPMENT . </li></ul>
  3. 7. GENE VARIANTS IN AUTISM LINKED TO BRAIN DEVELOPMENT .
  4. 8. GENE VARIANTS IN AUTISM LINKED TO BRAIN DEVELOPMENT .
  5. 9. This study is important for the knowledge that we need to have about tha autism and the genomic.
  6. 11. RESEARCHERS REVEAL FIRST AUTISM CANDIDATE GENE THAT DEMONSTRATES SENSITIVITY TO SEX HORMONES   Researchers have found that male and female sex hormones regulate expression of an important gene in neuronal cell, and the researchers said a mechanism that could explain not only higher levels of testosterone observed in some individuals with autism .
  7. 12. <ul><li>RESEARCHERS REVEAL FIRST AUTISM CANDIDATE GENE THAT DEMONSTRATES SENSITIVITY TO SEX HORMONES </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is a gene that encodes a critical protein in the development of the cerebellum. </li></ul></ul>Rora gene regulated the aromatase to convert testosterone in estrogen. RORA
  8. 13. <ul><li>RESEARCHERS REVEAL FIRST AUTISM CANDIDATE GENE THAT DEMONSTRATES SENSITIVITY TO SEX HORMONES </li></ul>In conclusion The researchers believe that females may be more protected against RORA deficiency by positive effect of estrogen on RORA expression, but also because estrogen receptors, which regulate a same genes. This is the explanation of why males have a higher tendency for autism than females.
  9. 14. This knowledge is necessary for the creation of new medications and new forms of diagnosis
  10. 16. <ul><li>MEDICAL UTILITY </li></ul>The autism is a very beautiful disease but this is complicated because in this moment dosnt know the cause of this, but the researches are invistigated new methods for regulated the gene that encode for protein expressed in the autism.  
  11. 17. <ul><li>This new research are very important for science and medicine because it can identify new diagnostics, treatments, control the genes that have been discovered and not only explain the autism but other diseases. </li></ul>MEDICAL UTILITY
  12. 18. <ul><li>This news are very important because allows physicians, medicine, student and researchers understand the autism the development brain and neurotransmission in autism people, and understand the relation with other diseases, the endocrine system and important genes. </li></ul>MEDICAL UTILITY
