Almost all Japanese group A xeroderma pigmentosum (XP-A) patients have nonsense and/or nonsense codon-leading mutations in the XP group A (XPA) gene, and develop neurological abnormalities. Walking ability is one of the most important neuromuscular functions of the patients, because it determines their daily activities. We studied the correlation between… CONTINUE READING
