Causes of fragile X syndrome

Causes of fragile X syndrome

Fragile X syndrome is caused by a change to a gene on the X-chromosome called the FMR1 gene. This gene produces a protein that helps the brain to function normally. If this gene is changed or altered in any way, it cannot produce its normal protein, which can result in Fragile X syndrome.
