Animal models of muscular dystrophy--what can they teach us?

Abstract

The discovery and characterization of the X-linked gene which is defective in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and of its protein product, dystrophin, has led to the identification of biochemical homologues of this disease in the mouse, the dog and the cat.
