Effects of Friedreich's ataxia GAA repeats on DNA replication in mammalian cells

Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA) is a common hereditary degenerative neuro-muscular disorder caused by expansions of the (GAA)n repeat in the first intron of the frataxin gene. The expanded repeats from parents frequently undergo further significant length changes as they are passed on to progeny.

Chromatin changes in the development and pathology of the Fragile X-associated disorders and Friedreich ataxia

The Fragile X-associated disorders (FXDs) and Friedreich ataxia (FRDA) are genetic conditions resulting from expansion of a trinucleotide repeat in a region of the affected gene that is transcribed but not translated. In the case of the FXDs, pathology results from expansion of CGG•CCG-repeat tract in the 5' UTR of the FMR1 gene, while pathology in FRDA results from expansion of a GAA•TTC-repeat in intron 1 of the FXN gene.
