Ben-Yosef / Mayshar Fragile-X Syndrome

This volume discusses the latest technologies used to study all aspects of Fragile-X Syndrome (FXS). The chapters in this book cover topics such as monitoring for epigenetic modifications at the FMR1 locus; modeling FXS with human pluripotent stem cells, mouse neural progenitors; mouse versus human-based models for FXS pre-clinical research; and Fragile-X associated with Tremor/Ataxia Syndrome (FXTAS). Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and thorough, Fragile-X Syndrome: Methods and Protocols is a valuable tool to help scientists working towards one day developing a therapeutic solution to improve the symptoms of FXS.
