Fragile X Syndrome Market

Fragile X Syndrome (FXS) is a genetic disease because of a CGG trinucleotide expansion, called full mutation (greater than 200 CGG repeats), in the fragile X mental retardation one gene locus Xq27.3. It leads to a hyper-methylated region in the gene promoter, hence, silencing it and decreasing the expression levels of the fragile X mental retardation 1, a protein involved in synaptic plasticity and maturation. 


The people with FXS are present with intellectual disability, autism, hyperactivity, long face, large or prominent ears, and macroorchidism at puberty and after that. Most of the young children with FXS will present with language delay, sensory hyperarousal, and anxiety.
