Pten and the Brain: Sizing up Social Interaction.

In a comprehensive set of experiments in this issue of Neuron, Kwon et al. demonstrate that conditional inactivation of Pten leads to behavioral abnormalities and neuropathological changes. Pten mutants displayed reduced social interaction and heightened responses to sensory stimuli. Additionally, neuronal hypertrophy, as well as macrocephaly was observed. Based on rare human mutations in PTEN and the PI3K pathway, the authors suggest they have produced a potential animal model of autism with macrocephaly.[1]
