This large expansion leads to silencing the gene and depletion of a specific protein (FMRP), which is important in synaptic plasticity.
Small expansions of the CGG repeat lead to some other abnormal conditions occurring in adults, including early menopause in females, and a spectrum of neurodegenerative disorders, including Fragile X–Associated Tremor Ataxia Syndrome (FXTAS), predominantly in males.
