All Genes Are Not Created Equal
Date:8/21/2013

ophrenia and fragile X syndrome, although they may seem drastically different, share key features, particularly the cognitive impairment that is frequently associated with both conditions," said Freimer for an article on the website PsychCentral.com. "So, it is not unexpected that they could share some of the same biological processes."

A second study from the U.S. National Institutes of Health, also published this week in Nature Neuroscience, outlined an identical relationship between schizophrenia and Fragile X.

Although relegated to relative obscurity for many years, we're likely to start seeing a lot more in the scientific and popular media about the FMR1 gene, its FMRP protein and fragile X syndrome. Increased government funding of these exciting connections is sure to follow.

The National Fragile X Foundation, founded in 1984, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides informational, referral and emotional support; educational and awareness materials and activities; support for research including the translation of science into new and improved treatments; and legislative advocacy. More information is available at www.fragilex.org.
