Fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) plays a vital role in neuronal development and maturation. Deletion or lack of expression of the gene encoding FMRP results in fragile X syndrome. FMRP1 acts as a vital element of messenger ribonucleoprotein complexes present within the translation apparatus, and is involved in the regulation of mRNA translation.

The protein encoded by this gene binds RNA and is associated with polysomes. The encoded protein may be involved in mRNA trafficking from the nucleus to the cytoplasm. A trinucleotide repeat (CGG) in the 5′ UTR is normally found at 6-53 copies, but an expansion to 55-230 repeats is the cause of fragile X syndrome. Expansion of the trinucleotide repeat may also cause one form of premature ovarian failure (POF1). (provided by RefSeq)
