Using immunohistochemical methods, we assessed the distribution of all 10 known laminin chains (alpha1-5, beta1-3, gamma1 and gamma2) in skeletal muscles from patients with Duchenne, congenital, limb girdle, or Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophies. The alpha2, beta1 and gamma1 chains were abundant in the basal lamina surrounding muscle fibers in normal… CONTINUE READING
