H00465                      Disease                                

Fragile X Syndrome, including:
Fragile X Syndrome (FXS);
Fragile X tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS)
Fragile X syndrome (FXS) is a cognitive disorder caused by silencing of the fragile X mental retardation 1 gene (FMR1). Absence of the associated protein FMRP leads to the dysregulation of many genes creating a phenotype of ADHD, anxiety, epilepsy and autism.There are also several physical features commonly associated with FXS, including elongated faces, prominent ears, and macroorchidism. The most prevalent genetic aberration at the FMR1 locus arises from a noncoding CGG repeat in the 5'untranslated region. Expansion of this region can give rise to FXS or fragile-X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS).
