Abstract

Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are one of the neurodevelopmental disorders. About one-five of children diagnosed with ASD have regression autism. Adenosine monophosphate (AMP)-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is precisely control the balance of ATP metabolism in mitochondria, the organelle that show dysfunction in regressive autism. Studies have shown that this sensor kinase can be effective in axonal growth. It has been suggested that exercise is one of the most powerful factors that increase mitochondrial activity and the amount of AMPK. Above the mentioned, we hypothesized that the physical activities can increase mitochondrial activity and reduce the symptoms of autistic children.
