We have conducted a multicenter obstetrical and gynecological survey of women in fragile X families. Included in the study were 131 gene carriers (39 with a full mutation and 92 with a premutation) and 109 noncarriers. Analysis indicated that higher numbers of fragile X gene carriers reported having irregular menses and other gynecological complications. As(More)
OBJECTIVE Fragile X syndrome is caused by a mutation involving expansion of a CGG trinucleotide repeat segment in the fragile X mental retardation-1 (FMR1) gene on the long arm of the X chromosome. This study was undertaken to determine the relative impact of three molecular characteristics of the FMR1 mutation--number of CGG repeats, methylation status,(More)
We have studied the neurocognitive deficit in premutation and full mutation women as compared to control women and to explore the relationship between those deficits and the incidence of emotional problems. Four groups of women were examined: two fragile X (fra(X)) negative control groups, one of which grew up in fra(X) families and one not; and two DNA(More)
Fragile X (fra(X)) males with a standardized IQ score of 70 or higher represent a high functioning (HF) or nonretarded fra(X) male group. This group, which does not include nonpenetrant males, has received little research attention to date. Of 221 fra(X) males who had been evaluated through The Children's Hospital in Denver since 1981 and had completed(More)
OBJECTIVE The frequency of DSM III-R symptoms of schizotypal personality disorder as it relates to CGG amplification and to the cytogenetic expression of fragile X syndrome was explored. METHOD Four groups of women were examined: 30 control mothers of children with developmental problems, 17 control women who grew up in fragile X families, 28 women(More)
The physical features of fragile X, including a long face, prominent ears, and hyperextensible joints, are present in affected males and females. Cytogenetically negative heterozygotes have been considered to be unaffected by the fragile X mental retardation-1 (FMR-1) gene. This study investigated the penetrance of the FMR-1 gene in cytogenetically negative(More)
INTRODUCTION Fragile X syndrome is the most commonly known inherited form of mental retardation. The intellectual abilities range from a normal IQ with learning disabilities to severe mental retardation. In males, there is a tendency for IQ decline in childhood. The purpose of this study was to correlate variations of the molecular cytosine guanine guanine(More)
We describe a pilot project utilizing saliva to identify the FMR-1 mutation in high-risk special education students from four public school districts in Colorado. The program included presentations to special education teachers regarding fragile X syndrome, parental consent for testing, completion of a behavior checklist by the teachers, identification of(More)
