Association of genes with phenotype in autism spectrum disorder

Figure 2. Diagram showing ASD risk genes and autistic phenotypes associated with different lobes of the brain. CNTNAP2 is found to be associated with frontal and occipital lobes of the brain [70, 73]. NRXN1 is found to be linked with parietal and frontal lobes [74]. FOXP2 is found to be linked with temporal lobe and MET in occipital and temporal lobes [75]. Cadherins (CDH9 and CDH11) are found to be linked with the cerebellum region [37].
