The 14kb dystrophin transcript from the Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) locus, which encodes a 427kDa protein, is differentially spliced at the amino terminal end giving rise to alternative transcripts expressed in muscle and brain. Here we present evidence for a 4.8kb transcript from the DMD locus which is ubiquitously expressed but is particularly… CONTINUE READING
