We determined the calmodulin concentration and Ca2+-ATPase activity in subcellular fractions recovered from samples of vastus lateralis muscle obtained from 18 patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, 10 patients with other primary myopathies, 5 with spinal muscular atrophy, and 16 age-matched controls. Calmodulin levels were increased in the cytosol… CONTINUE READING
