Fragile X: carrier detection in pregnancy.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  3953663     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The expression of the fragile X in 9 pregnant women (4 obligate carriers and 5 carriers at risk) was not significantly different from the expression observed either before or after pregnancy in the same individuals. Hence, carrier diagnosis during pregnancy seems to be as reliable as in non-pregnant women.
