Distribution of <i>FMR1</i> genotypes and sub-genotypes in women with <i>BRCA1/2</i> mutations (black bars) and U.S. (gray) comparison group; * within each category denotes significance at P<0.05. Noteworthy are the excess of <i>het-norm/low</i> and complete absence of <i>het-norm/high</i> in <i>FMR1</i> sub-genotypes in <i>BRCA1/2</i> mutation carriers, and the very low prevalence of women with <i>norm FMR1</i> genotype.

<p>A numerical presentation of these data is presented in (a), In description of genotypes <i>norm</i> stands for normal, <i>het</i> for heterozygous and <i>hom</i> for homozygous. In description of sub-genotypes <i>high</i> stands for CGG<sub> n>34</sub> and <i>low</i> for CGG<sub> n<26.</sub></p
