Hotspots of missense mutation identify novel neurodevelopmental disorder genes and functional domains

Nat Neurosci
PMCID: 5539915
PMID: 28628100
DOI: 10.1038/nn.4589

[…] e mutation will become more transparent and may be better understood in the context of protein structure. PTPN11, associated with Noonan syndrome, is predicted, for example, to have three clusters by CLUMP and 3D protein structure analysis reveals that these three clusters define the cleft of the ligand binding site ().It is interesting that genes associated with hotspots of missense mutation () a […]
