Abstract:An increasing number of genetic variants involved in dyslexia development were
discovered during the last years, yet little is known about the molecular
functional mechanisms of these SNPs. In this study we investigated whether
dyslexia candidate SNPs have a direct, disease-specific effect on local
expression levels of the assumed target gene by using a differential allelic
expression assay. In total, 12 SNPs previously associated with dyslexia and
related phenotypes were suitable for analysis. Transcripts cor… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
