X-linked myotubular myopathy (XLMTM) is a devastating, rare, congenital myopathy caused by mutations in the MTM1 gene, resulting in a lack of or dysfunction of the enzyme myotubularin. This leads to severe perinatal weakness and distinctive muscle pathology. It was originally thought that XLMTM was related to developmental arrest in myotube maturation;(More)
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is an autosomal recessive disease of variable severity caused by mutations in the SMN1 gene. Deficiency of the ubiquitous SMN function results in spinal cord α-motor neuron degeneration and proximal muscle weakness. Gene replacement therapy with recombinant adeno-associated viral (AAV) vectors showed therapeutic efficacy in(More)

We previously reported in Science Translational Medicine (STM) unprecedented results (1) from gene replacement experiments in MTM1-mutant animal models of X-linked myotubular myopathy (XLMTM, OMIM 310400) (2). This devastating congenital muscle disorder results from deficiency of myotubularin, a phosphatidylinositol-3-phosphatase required for skeletal(More)
