Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is an autosomal recessive disease caused, in about 95% of SMA cases, by homozygous deletion of the survival motor neuron 1 (SMN1) gene or its conversion to the highly homologous SMN2 gene. The molecular diagnosis of SMA is usually carried out by a PCR-Restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) approach. However, this(More)
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is an autosomal recessive disease caused in about 95% of SMA patients by homozygous deletion of the survival motor neuron 1 (SMN1) gene or its conversion to the highly homologous SMN2 gene. In the majority of cases, disease severity correlates inversely with increased SMN2 copy number. Because of the comparatively high(More)
