Positional cloning led to the identification of this gene, FMR1, which has a unique CGG repeat tract in the 5′ untranslated region (UTR) that varies in size among individuals. When the number of repeats is larger than 200, the region is hypermethylated and the gene is no longer expressed. The protein encoded by FMR1, FMRP, binds messenger RNA (mRNA) and assembles with ribosomes.
