Rett syndrome (RS) is a complex and severely disabling neurologic disorder, restricted to females. As non-random X inactivation could indicate that the X chromosome has a role in the etiology of the syndrome, we performed molecular analysis based on the differential methylation of the active and inactive X chromosomes with probe M27β, taking into account the parental origin of the two Xs, in 24 RS girls (including a pair of concordant monozygote twins), 22 mothers, and a control group of 30… CONTINUE READING
