Study Description

Fragile X syndrome (FXS) is a monogenic neurodevelopmental disease often caused by a CGG triplet expansion in the 5’UTR of the FMR1 gene, which results in DNA methylation of the FMR1 promoter and its transcriptional silencing. Exceptional healthy individuals named "unmethylated full mutation (UFM)" have been identified in the families of FX patients. They carry an expanded CGG repeat, but show normal FMR1 epigenetic configuration and expression. In this study we performed exome-sequencing of two UFM individuals and their family members to identify possible genetic mutations responsible for the escape of silencing in the unmethylated full mutation (UFM) phenotype.
