Replication status of the fragile X chromosome and its implications for reproductive performance in the Indian mole rat (Nesokia indica)

in Reproduction

Summary. In all fertile females the fragile X chromosome was almost always late replicating (inactive) in an average 82% of cells whereas in infertile females, it was early replicating (active) in about the same percentage of cells. These observations strongly suggest a correlation between the replication (activity) status of the fragile X chromosome and reproductive performance.
