Everything is connected and affected really Fragile X Syndrome is common. It’s not only the most common identifiable inherited cause of intellectual disability, it’s also the most common identifiable inherited cause of autism spectrum conditions it affects as many as 1 in 3,000 to 1 in 4,000 individuals in its full mutation state but it’s…

Scientists lessened some symptoms of an autistic disorder in mice, by using the gene-editing technique, CRISPR-Cas9. Mice like to dig. Scientists add marbles to their bedding to measure how much digging they do. But mice with “fragile X Syndrome”, a genetic mutation that causes exaggerated repetitive behavior, dig obsessively, covering up more marbles. After a…
