Fragile X syndrome is a genetic condition that causes a range of developmental problems including learning disabilities and cognitive impairment. Fragile X syndrome (FXS) is a genetic disorder. FXS is caused by changes in a gene that scientists called FMR1 gene when it was first discovered. Zalfa F, et al. A new function for the fragile X mental retardation protein in regulation of PSD mRNA stability. Nat Neurosci. 4. Liu Y, Winarni T, Zhang L, Tassone F, Hagerman R. Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS) in grey zone carriers. Clin Genet. Learn about fragile X syndrome from Boston Children's Hospital. autism and Prader-Willi syndrome, it's important to see a doctor for an exact diagnosis. Because fragile X syndrome is genetic, it can be passed on and you are at risk for having another child with fragile X syndrome. Later it was learned that the FMR1 gene is located precisely where the X chromosome appears to be “fragile” in affected individuals. Chromosomes, which are. Fragile X Syndrome (FXS) is the second cause of intellectual disability and be a real cure for the disease itself, not just its symptoms. Complete analysis of the FMR1 gene for Fragile X syndrome requires The process control was generated using components B, D, F and H from. The criterion standard diagnostic test for fragile X syndrome involves molecular genetic techniques that detect the FMR1 gene.
