Limb-girdle muscular dystrophies (LGMD) are a heterogeneous group of genetically determined muscle disorders with a primary or predominant involvement of the pelvic or shoulder girdle musculature. More than 20 genes with autosomal recessive (LGMD2A to LGMD2Q) and autosomal dominant inheritance (LGMD1A to LGMD1H) have been mapped/identified to date.(More)
BACKGROUND The etiology of idiopathic scoliosis remains unknown and different factors have been suggested as causal. Hereditary factors can also determine the etiology of the disease; however, the pattern of inheritance remains unknown. Autosomal dominant, X-linked and multifactorial patterns of inheritances have been reported. Other studies have suggested(More)
Gracilaria tenuistipitata is a red macroalga often found in intertidal environments, where it is frequently under drought stress due to tidal water scarcity. In order to be able to study the molecular mechanisms involved in G. tenuistipitata resistance to dehydration, we have done a dehydration assay, tested different RNA extraction protocols, and selected(More)
