[A new mechanism of mutation in man: expansion of trinucleotide repeats].

Abstract

An analysis of a novel, recently discovered class of mutations in man - an expansion, i.e., an increase of the copy number of intragenic unstable trinucleotide repeats - is presented. The expansion of trinucleotide repeats causes the development of at least seven hereditary diseases which damage the nervous system: the fragile X chromosome syndrome (two… (More)
