Evaluation and characterization of a high-resolution melting analysis kit for rapid carrier-screening test of spinal muscular atrophy.


Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a common autosomal recessive disorder in humans, caused by the homozygous absence of the survival motor neuron gene 1 (SMN1). SMN2, a copy gene, influences the severity of SMA. Several assays have been described for molecular diagnosis or carrier screening of SMA. A newly developed tool based on a high-resolution melting… (More)
