Dramatical development of molecular genetics has been disclosing the molecular mechanism of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD). DMD gene product, dystrophin, is a submembranous cytoskeletal protein and many dystrophin-associated proteins (DAPs) have been identified, such as utrophin, dystroglycans, sarcoglycans, syntrophins and dystrobrevins. Dystrophin and DAPs are very important proteins not only for skeletal, cardiac, or smooth muscles but also for… CONTINUE READING
