Test Code: FRAGX
Description: Fragile X syndrome is associated with mental retardation. This assay is performed by analysis of the CGG repeat region using PCR-based methods, which allows the determination of the number of repeats in the normal and premutation range. Both the degree of CGG repeat amplification and the extent of methylation in the full mutation range are detected by Southern blot hybridization.
