ALL I can tell is the expression of this gene is significantly upregulated in cfs patients compared to controls it seems to be associated with fragile x syndrome or at least a sign of chromosomal damage in areas of the chromosome responsible for normal neuron function in areas such as working memory or other major cognitive function----it could theoretically be associated with the neurocognitive problems associated with our illness.Nufip2 unpegulation will produce symptoms similar to a neurodenerative disorder which would normally be inherited even in the absence of a genetic defect------what causes the upregulation of this gene in these patients is anyones guess but it is possible that an inserted retrovirus could cause it

thank you so much,

and OMG

i think my daughters autism is fragile x, she has the odd features of fragile x.

I was investigated for turners sydrom as a child. but fragile x was unknown back then. I have the simian crease.

WOW.

I think the fragile-x could well be XMRV damage, its a repeating gene sequence mutation, depending on how many reapets as to how affected one might be. I wondered if it could be the virus writing itself into the same area repeatewdly.

I've been trying to get this question answered since october last year.

I could hug you.

My paternal grandmother had atypical MS.

infact
:hug:
