Fragile X Syndrome is a still little known and hardly mentioned genetic condition, which affects intellectual development, behavior and causes speech delays.
It is caused by a mutation in a gene (FMR1) that inhibits or reduces the production of a protein (FMRP) essential for the development of the nervous system and various brain functions.
Studies indicate that it is the most common hereditary cause of intellectual disability and can often be associated with autism.
It received this name because when studying the chromosomes of a person affected by the Fragile X Syndrome, we can see a fragile site on the long arm of the X chromosome.
