Featured Video: Identification of a molecular cause of a developmental disorder

A study by Smits and colleagues has pinpointed specific regions of the DLG2 gene expressed in brain cells that upon deletion appear to be associated with developmental delay and intellectual disability phenotypes. This research improves our understanding of the molecular causes of neurodevelopmental disorders and fundamental knowledge about the DLG2 gene – see the video abstract for a graphic summary of the paper.
