BACKGROUND Autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophies (LGMD2) include a number of disorders with heterogeneous etiology that cause predominantly weakness and wasting of the shoulder and pelvic girdle muscles. In this study, we determined the frequency of LGMD subtypes within a cohort of Czech LGMD2 patients using mutational analysis of the CAPN3,(More)
OBJECTIVE An increased rate of fractures has been reported in patients with Turner syndrome (TS). We aimed to assess bone geometry and volumetric bone mineral density (vBMD) at the radius in girls with TS and to evaluate the relationships between bone parameters and fracture history. METHODS AND DESIGN Sixty-seven girls with TS aged 6-19 years treated(More)
OBJECTIVES To present gender-specific pediatric normative data on the main parameters of muscle function assessed using jumping mechanography. METHODS The study population included 796 non-selected Caucasian children and adolescents (432 girls and 364 boys) aged 6-19 years recruited from 6 primary schools and 3 high schools. Maximum peak power (Pmax) was(More)
Hypertext atlas of fetal and neonatal pathology is a free resource for pregraduate students of medicine, pathologists and other health professionals dealing with prenatal medicine. The atlas can be found at http://www.muni.cz/atlases. The access is restricted to registered users. Concise texts summarize the gross and microscopic pathology, etiology, and(More)
The pathogenesis of myotonic dystrophy type 2 includes the sequestration of MBNL proteins by expanded CCUG transcripts, which leads to an abnormal splicing of their target pre-mRNAs. We have found CCUG(exp) RNA transcripts of the ZNF9 gene associated with the formation of ribonuclear foci in human skeletal muscle and some non-muscle tissues present in(More)
An isothermal small-strain model based on the concept of generalized standard solids is devised, combining Maxwell-type rheology, damage, and perfect plasticity in the bulk. An interface analogue of the model is formulated at the lithospheric faults, exploiting concepts of adhesive contacts with interfacial plasticity. The model covers simultaneously(More)
