[Molecular genetics and problems found in genetic diagnosis of Duchenne Becker muscular dystrophy].

Abstract

Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies (DMD and BMD, respectively) are the most common inherited muscular diseases and caused by mutations in the dystrophin gene. Half to two-thirds of DMD and BMD patients carry deletions (usually of several kilobases of genomic DNA). The clinical progression in DMD and BMD patients with deletions can be predicted in 92… (More)
