Mutations that abolish expression of an X-linked gene, FMR1, result in the pathogenesis of fragile X syndrome, the most common form of inherited mental retardation. To understand the normal function of the FMR1 protein, we have produced fly strains bearing deletions in a Drosophila homolog of FMR1 (dfmr1). Since fragile X patients show a number of abnormal(More)
Fragile X syndrome is the most common form of inherited mental retardation Mutations which abolish expression of an X-linked gene, FMR1, result in pathogenesis of the disease. FMR1 encodes a cytoplasmic RNA-binding protein which interacts with two autosomal homologs, FXR1 and FXR2. These proteins are highly expressed in neurons. In addition, the FMR1/FXR(More)
