Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is due to the loss of the survival motor neuron gene 1 (SMN1), resulting in motor neuron (MN) degeneration, muscle atrophy and loss of motor function. While SMN2 encodes a protein identical to SMN1, a single nucleotide difference in exon 7 causes most of the SMN2-derived transcripts to be alternatively spliced resulting in a(More)
