Recent biological research has concluded that two wrongs do, in fact, make a right! Fragile X syndrome, the most frequent single-gene cause of autism and most common cause of mental retardation, has been proved to be cured-not by science-but by another failed gene expression. The problem is caused by a repeated CGG gene expression that codes for normal neurological development. The Fragile X gene is solely responsible for the translation of over 1,000 mRNA sequences. Using research about a different disease and frog eggs, the research team has found a defect in another gene that actually reverses the effect of Fragile X syndrome. (Read more…)
