In 1991, the fragile X gene (FMR1) was characterized and found to contain a tandemly repeated trinucleotide sequence (CGG) near its 5' end. The mutation responsible for fragile X syndrome involves expansion of this repeat segment. The number of CGG repeats in the FMR1 genes of the general population v...
