AHI1 (Abelson Helper Integration Site 1 )
AHI1 (Abelson Helper Integration Site 1) is a neurodevelopment gene that underwent accelerated evolution in the human lineage. Mutations in AHI1 cause Joubert syndrome, a disorder that causes congenital malformation of the brain accompanied by cognitive difficulties and autistic behaviors. Variants in AHI1 also are implicated in susceptibility for Autism and Schizophrenia. This data has led to the hypothesis that the human specific changes in AHI1 may be implicated in human cognitive changes.
