Increased Ca2+ signaling in NRXN1α +/- neurons derived from ASD induced pluripotent stem cells

Summary

This is the first report to show that human NRXN1α +/- neurons derived from ASD patients' iPSCs present novel phenotypes of upregulated VGCCs and increased Ca2+ transients, which may facilitate the development of drug screening assays for the treatment of ASD. © The Author(s). 2019.
