Chromosome 15q11-q13 region showing the autism candidate region. A schematic representation of the 15q11-q13 interval duplicated in autism cases and deleted in Prader-Willi/Angelman syndrome is shown. IC denotes the position of the 15q imprinting center. Loci corresponding to previous reports of linkage and association are indicated by dark and light arrowheads, respectively, below the map.
