DUCHENNE muscular dystrophy (DMD) is caused by a defective gene found on the X-chromosome1. Dystrophin is encoded by the DMD gene and represents about 0.002% of total muscle protein2. Immunochemical studies have shown that dystrophin is localized to the sarcolemma in normal muscle but is absent in muscle from DMD patients3–7. Many features of the predicted primary struc-ture of dystrophin are shared with membrane cytoskeletal pro-teins8, but the precise function of dystrophin in muscle is… CONTINUE READING
