MedlinePlus:36 Fragile x syndrome is the most common form of inherited developmental disability. a problem with a specific gene causes the disease. normally, the gene makes a protein you need for brain development. but the problem causes a person to make little or none of the protein. this causes the symptoms of fragile x. people with only a small change in the gene might not show any signs of fragile x. people with bigger changes can have severe symptoms. these might include intelligence problems, ranging from learning disabilities to severe intellectual disabilities social and emotional problems, such as aggression in boys or shyness in girls speech and language problems, especially in boys a genetic blood test can diagnose fragile x. there is no cure. you can treat some symptoms with educational, behavioral, or physical therapy, and with medicines. getting treatment early can help. nih: national institute of child health and human development
MalaCards based summary: Fragile X Syndrome, also known as martin-bell syndrome, is related to epilepsy and fragile x syndrome type 1, and has symptoms including macroorchidism, otitis media and joint hypermobility. An important gene associated with Fragile X Syndrome is FMR1 (Fragile X Mental Retardation 1), and among its related pathways are GPCRs, Class C Metabotropic glutamate, pheromone and Hypothetical Network for Drug Addiction. Affiliated tissues include brain, testes and eye, and related mouse phenotypes are reproductive system and integument.
Disease Ontology:11 An x-linked disease that is characterized by moderate to severe mental retardation, macroorchidism, and distinct facial features, including long face, large ears, and prominent jaw, and has material basis in x-linked inheritance and a loss of fmr1 function.
NIH Rare Diseases:46 Fragile x syndrome is a genetic condition involving changes in part of the x chromosome. this condition causes a range of developmental problems including learning disabilities and cognitive impairment. it is the most common form of inherited intellectual disability in males and a significant cause of intellectual disability in females. other signs and symptoms may include symptoms of autism spectrum disorders, seizures, and characteristic physical features. fragile x syndrome is caused by a change (mutation) in the fmr1 gene and is inherited in an x-linked dominant manner. there is no cure yet and treatment is based on the symptoms present in the person. early physical and education therapy is recommended. last updated: 5/12/2016
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:68 Fragile X syndrome: Common genetic disease (has a prevalence of one in every 2000 children) which is characterized by moderate to severe mental retardation, macroorchidism (enlargement of the testicles), large ears, prominent jaw, and high-pitched, jocular speech. The defect in most fragile X syndrome patients results from an amplification of a CGG repeat region which is directly in front of the coding region.
Genetics Home Reference:24 Fragile X syndrome is a genetic condition that causes a range of developmental problems including learning disabilities and cognitive impairment. Usually, males are more severely affected by this disorder than females.
