AUTS2

Below is a summary for the AUTS2 gene observed in research publications. This is not meant to take the place of medical advice.

What is AUTS2-related syndrome?

AUTS2-related syndrome happens when there are changes to the AUTS2 gene. These changes can keep the gene from working as it should.

Key Role

The AUTS2 gene helps the body to develop.

Symptoms

Because the AUTS2 gene is important in development, many people who have AUTS2-related syndrome have:

  • Learning problems, developmental delay
  • Features of autism
  • Motor delays
  • Speech delays

Do people who have AUTS2-related syndrome look different?

Most people who have AUTS2-related syndrome don’t look very different from others.

GeneReviews

GeneReviews are a great resource to bring to your child’s clinicians. These publications provide a summary of current research on genetic conditions and information on ongoing care.

There is currently no GeneReviews for AUTS2.

Research Article Summaries

We currently do not have any article summaries for AUTS2, but we add resources to our website as they become available.

The information available about AUTS2 is limited, and families and doctors share a critical need for more information. As we learn more from children who have this gene change, we expect our list of resources and information to grow.

You can also visit the Simons Foundation’s SFARI Gene website to see information for researchers about this gene.
