Abstract Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are a group of diseases exhibiting impairment in social drive, communication/language skills and stereotyped behaviors. Though an increased number of candidate genes and molecular interactions have been identified by various approaches, the pathogenesis remains elusive. Based on clinical observations, data from accessible GWAS and expression datasets we identified ASDs gene candidates. Integrative gene network and a novel CNV-centric Node Network (CNN) analysis method highlighted ASDs-associated key elements and biological processes. Functional analysis identified neurological functions including synaptic cholinergic receptor (CHRNA) families, dopamine receptor (DRD2), and correlations between social behavior and oxytocin related pathways. CNN analysis of genome-wide genetic and expression data identified inheritance-related clusters related to PTEN/TSC1/FMR1 and mTor/PI3K regulation. Integrative analysis identified potential regulators of networks, specifically TNF and beta-estradiol, suggesting a potential central role in ASDs. Our data provide information on potential disease mechanisms, and key regulators that may generate novel postulations, and diagnostic molecular biomarkers. Published by Elsevier B.V.
