    BMC Med Genet 9:1. 2008
    ..Due to the close proximity of the CYP21A2 gene to the C4B locus (3 kb) it was decided to examine samples from autistic subjects, including many with known C4B null alleles for common CYP21A2 mutations...

    ..These proteins may act in concert with C4 in disease contribution and the genes should be more closely examined...
