Carrier diagnosis of Duchenne muscular dystrophy using restriction fragment length polymorphisms.


Molecular probes that are tightly linked to and flank the Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) locus, have been used to characterize DMD mutations and diagnose female carriers. Deletions within the Xp21 region were identified for 8 of 71 families studied. Using both DNA and CK studies, accurate (96 to 98%) carrier or noncarrier diagnoses were made for 51 of 75… (More)
