Mutations in the dystrophin gene lead to dystrophin deficiency, which is the cause of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). This important discovery more than 10 years ago opened a new field for very productive investigations. However, the exact functions of dystrophin are still not fully understood and the complex process leading to subsequent muscle fiber necrosis has not been clearly described; hence there has not yet been any marked improvement in patient treatment. To decipher the molecular… CONTINUE READING
