mRNAs coprecipitable with the Fragile x Mental Retardation protein

Compositions and methods for identifying and/or modulating RNA transcripts and/or genes involved in fragile X syndrome and other associated disorders are provided. In particular, RNA targets for fragile X mental retardation protein (FMRP) have been identified by a novel monoclonal antibody to FMRP and a consensus sequence for the RNA binding region has been identified. Arrays for identifying compounds, proteins, nucleotides, and the like that modulate the RNA targets or associated genes are provided. Additionally, methods for modulating RNA targets are provided.
