Dystrophin analysis using a panel of anti-dystrophin antibodies in Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy.

Abstract

Dystrophin, the protein product of the Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) gene, was studied in 19 patients with Xp21 disorders and in 25 individuals with non-Xp21 muscular dystrophy. Antibodies raised to seven different regions spanning most of the protein were used for immunocytochemistry. In all patients specific dystrophin staining anomalies were detected… (More)
