rs38845 is a SNP in the MET gene. It is significantly associated with Autism.
Carriers of the ''A'' allele are at an increased risk of developing Autism. A genotype analysis suggested an increased risk for the AA/GA genotypes compared with GG (a dominant effect of A) of nearly 2.5 times (P=0.02) [R].
The ''A'' allele was associated with both Autism and Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) [R].
