What is it about?
ADNP mutations cause ADNP syndrome strongly related to autism. We found that Adnp functions in the developing cerebral cortex in mice.

Why is it important?
We found that Adnp plays an important role in neuritogenesis, spinogenesis, neural connectivity and neural activity. Additionally, we were able to identify the mechanisms by which Adnp distribution in neurons changes from the nucleus to the cytoplasm during neuronal differentiation via Adnp phosphorylation and binding to 14-3-3.
