This image represents the inheritance of Fragile X Syndrome when the parents are non-symptomatic. When the mother is a carrier of the fragile X chromosome, each child has a 50% chance of inheritance. Since girls have 2 X chromosomes, they are less likely to display symptoms of Fragile X Syndrome when compared to boys.
