Overview of repeats

Expansions of CTG repeats in 3′ UTR of JPH3 gene have shown to cause Huntington's disease-like 2 (HDL2) syndrome and affected individuals have been found to carry alleles with 41-58 repeats, while in normal individuals, it varies from 6 to 27 repeats (Holmes et al., 2001; Margolis & Holmes, 2003).
