A microRNA profile in Fmr1 knockout mice reveals microRNA expression alterations with possible roles in fragile X syndrome

bioRxiv

Ting LiuYue-Sheng Long

Abstract

Fragile X syndrome (FXS), a common form of inherited mental retardation, is caused by a loss of expression of the fragile X mental retardation protein (FMRP). FMRP is involved in brain functions by interacting with mRNAs and microRNAs (miRNAs) that selectively control gene expression at...read more

Fragile X Syndrome

Fragile X syndrome is caused by an expanded CGG repeat (> 200 repeats) in the 5' untranslated portion of the fragile mental retardation 1 gene (FMR1) within the X chromosome, leading to deficiency of fragile X mental retardation protein (FMRP). It is cognitive impairment, hyperactivity, SEIZURES, language delay, and enlargement of the ears, head, and testes. Intellectual disability occurs in nearly all males and roughly 50% of females with the full mutation. Discover the latest research on Fragile X syndrome here.

Triplet Repeat Disorders

Triplet Repeat Disorders are genetic disorders that occur as a result of expansion of trinucleotide repeats in certain genes. Examples include Huntington’s disease, certain types of spinocerebellar ataxia, and Fragile X syndrome, among others. Here is the latest research.
