We present here the clinical, molecular and biochemical findings from 238 limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2A (LGMD2A) patients, representing approximately 50% (238 out of 484) of the suspected calpainopathy cases referred for the molecular study of the calpain 3 (CAPN3) gene. The mean age at onset of LGMD2A patients was approximately 14 years, and the(More)
The mtDNA polymorphisms A4336G, A10398G and T4216C have been associated with PD. While A4336G is thought to be a genetic risk factor, A10398G appears to be a protective factor and T4216C is only weakly associated with the disease. In this work we analyzed the association between these three genetic polymorphisms and PD in a Spanish-PD population. The(More)
