Kakinuma, 2008_1 human ---AD case report
  • Subjects: 1 Japanese girl
  • Normal Controls: -
  • Methods: FISH
  • Evidence Details: Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) with probes covering the region spanning a cluster of the gamma aminobutyric acid A (GABA-A) receptor subunit genes in the proximal short arm of chromosome 4 demonstrated total three signals for the GABRG1, GABRA4, and GABRA2 genes, but only two signals for GABRB1.
Fatemi, 2010_1 human brain--autism RNA expression, protein expression
  • Subjects: 9
  • Normal Controls: 12
  • Methods: qRT-PCR, western blot
  • Evidence Details: altered expression of gamma-aminobutyric acid A (GABAA) and ammaaminobutyric acid B (GABAB) receptors in the brains of subjects with autism.
Jiao, 2011_1 human bloodASD SNP-based diagnose model
  • Subjects: 180
  • Normal Controls: -
  • Methods: PCR
  • Evidence Details: We found no significant differences in genotypes and allele distributions with respect to this SNP between our ASD subjects and normal Asian populations in the HapMap
