FMRP is a polysome-associated RNA-binding protein encoded by Fmr1 that is lost in Fragile X syndrome. Increasing evidence suggests that FMRP regulates both translation initiation and elongation, but the gene-specificity of these effects is unclear. To elucidate the impact of Fmr1 loss on translation, we used ribosome profiling for genome-wide measurements of ribosomal occupancy and positioning in the cortex of 24 day-old Fmr1 knock-out mice. We found a remarkably coherent reduction in ribosomedoi:10.1101/319368 fatcat:2el7nj2tn5ga5ie2odklxgl7ou
