BACKGROUND Filamin myopathy is a neuromuscular disorder manifesting with predominantly limb-girdle muscle weakness and in many patients with diaphragm paralysis and cardiomyopathy, caused by mutations in the filamin C (FLNC) gene. Molecular diagnosis of filamin myopathy based on direct DNA sequencing of coding exons is compromised by the presence of a high homology pseudogene (pseFLNC) located approximately 53.6 kb downstream of the functional FLNC gene on chromosome 7q. METHODS Molecular… CONTINUE READING
