FFragile X Syndrome
FRAGILE X SYNDROME
Another name: Martin Bell Syndrome
It is a genetic condition in which it causes a range of developmental problems including cognitive impairment and learning difficulties.

It is one of the heritable forms of mental retardation.

(Fragile X syndrome – Genetics Home reference – NIH. (2018, October 30) Retrieved from https://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/condition/fragile-x-syndrome)
Causes
Fragile x syndrome is caused by gene mutation in the FMR1 gene on the x chromosome. During gene mutation, the genes lengthens and thereby it stops the production of proteins which carries the function in brain development and other.
