Medical Definition of Trinucleotide repeat

1. Repetitive part of a genome that may form part of the coding sequence of a gene. The length of such repeats is frequently polymorphic and unstably amplified repeats appear to be the major cause of such genetic diseases as Huntington disease, fragile X syndrome, spinobulbar muscular atrophy and myotonic dystrophy.
