Scientists know that lack of a properly functioning Mecp2 protein disturbs the function of mature brain cells but they do not know the exact mechanisms by which this happens. Investigators are trying to find other genetic switches that operate in a similar way to the MeCP2 protein. The goal of the study is to give broader insights into the many features and associated problems often seen in Rett syndrome as well as to learn more about males with MECP2 duplications and mutations.
