What is a sex linked trait?

If a gene is found on the X chromosome ( and, less commomly on the Y chromosome), it is said to be a sex-linked trait. Because the gene controlling the trait is located on the sex chromosome, sex linkage is linked to the gender of the individual. Usually such genes are found on the X chromosome. The Y chromosome is thus missing such genes (See Diagram above.). The result is that females will have two copies of the sex-linked gene while males will only have one copy of this gene. If the gene is recessive, then males only need one such recessive gene to have a sex-linked trait rather than the customary two recessive genes for traits that are not sex-linked. This is why males exhibit some traits more frequently than females.

it must be autosomal as it is in chromosome 1 which both genders have.

Is fragile x syndrome sex linked?

Yes. It is found as a mutation on the X chromosome (a sex chromosome) so it is sex linked. The gene for Fragile X is carried on the X chromosome. Because both males (XY) and females (XX) have at least one X chromosome, both can pass on the mutated gene to their children.
