Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy results from mutations in either emerin or lamin A/C and is caused by loss of some unknown function of emerin-lamin A/C complexes. This function must be of special importance in the skeletal and cardiac muscles that are affected by the disease. Some lamin A/C mutant proteins form 'nuclear foci' in the nucleoplasm when(More)
Most pathogenic mutations in Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies involve deletion of single or multiple exons from the dystrophin gene, so exon-specific monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) can be used to distinguish normal and mutant dystrophin proteins. In Duchenne therapy trials, mAbs can be used to identify or rule out dystrophin-positive "revertant"(More)
