Exclusion of the gene responsible for facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSH) at 6q23-q27.

Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSH) is an autosomal dominant condition with variable expressivity and age dependent penetrance. Linkage studies still did not exclude regions 11, 2q, 6q, 7p, 8p, 10q, 12p and 14p as possible locations for the FSH gene. In the present study we have analysed 80 individuals (36 patients and 44 normals) belonging to 8… CONTINUE READING
