Normal Variation in Size of the FMR2 Gene Is Not Associated with Variation in Intellectual Performance.

Intelligence, v27 n2 p175-82 1999
Studied the association between the number of cytosine-guanine-guanine (CCG) repeats in the FMR2 gene (a fragile X mental retardation gene) and IQ score among 902 school age children. Results indicate that variation in CGG size, among normal-size FMR2 alleles, is not a contributor to normal variation in intelligence. (SLD)
