  5. FMR1 is familial mental retardation.


  7. 2:23 "this is like getting lost in a video and watching the same part over and over"…. yh thats me in youtube videos trying to understand anything genetics related

  8. That location is not condensed in Fragile X syndrome though

  9. Thank you so much for this vídeo ! I am a Brazilian student and this “class” help me so much to understand the syndrome !

  10. Thank you so much, didn't catch the teacher at class, so lucky I found this video

  11. FMR1 = Control Z try again……..

  12. Shouldnt have watched.
    Now i think i have this, and want to die.

  13. The repeats amplify only during Oogenesis, not Spermatogenesis. Hence, the disease is less severe in father to child transmission.

  14. Tell us all again why this foul plague hasn't been culled from the face of the earth through eugenic euthanasia of the living vectors of cursed malformed seed.

  15. Like this if youre from Idubzz

  17. Niilo22 raakile-äx synkrooma tossaja& tämmöstä!

  18. Your videos are very helpfull thank u very much

  19. Is it X linked Dominant or X linked recessive?

  20. Very accurate! Maybe you should have added that men carrying the premutation will always pass the premutation on to all their daughters. Funnily it doesn‘t mutate any further when recieved from the fathers side.
    I‘m doing a lot of research myself since I‘m a premutation carrier and also found the following things, too:

    Female induviduals carrying the premutation are at highest risk for premature menopause when their repeats range from 80-100

    Only 20% of female premutation carriers will experience premature menopause

    Men are more likely affected by Fxtas due to the same reason as females being less affected by fragile x syndrom

    fragile x is so unpredictable and so few is known about it. I‘m excited for what science will find out about it in future!

  21. Can someone explain to me why the DNA Polymerase copies at 2:00 GCCGCCGCC instead of CGGCGGCGG. should it symbolize that he is confused ?

  22. Fragilexxxtentacion
