DOK7 mutations presenting as a proximal myopathy in French Canadians.


DOK7 mutations cause a congenital myasthenic syndrome (OMIM 254300) characterized by a "limb-girdle" phenotype. We identified 7 French-Canadian patients with a previously undiagnosed proximal myopathy. A genome wide scan was performed. Homozygosity mapping identified a locus on chromosome 4p16.2 containing DOK7. Sequencing of DOK7 revealed homozygous… (More)
