Genetics & Reproductive Risks The unusual and puzzling characteristics of inheritance of the fragile X syndrome arise from a “dynamic” mutation: the amplification of a repetitive sequence of 3 nucleotides (cytosine-guanine-guanine). 3 contains between 2–60 copies of CGG. An increase in the number of CGG repeats to 60–200 copies is known as a premutation characteristic of normal transmitting males and some normal carrier females. A premutation is significant because, when passed to offspring, it may develop into a full mutation (many hundreds to thousands of CGG repeats).
