We recently described a new type of adult onset distal myopathy (MPD3) with autosomal dominant inheritance. The onset of symptoms is around the age of 30 and the characteristic first symptoms include clumsiness of the hands and stumbling. The thenar and hypothenar muscles are involved at the onset. The disease progressed to the intrinsic muscles of the hands, both anterior and posterior muscle compartments of the lower legs, the forearm muscles, and later to the proximal muscles. Dystrophic… Expand
Kelch-like homologue 9 mutation is associated with an early onset autosomal dominant distal myopathy
TLDR
A unique form of early onset autosomal dominant distal myopathy which is associated with a Kelch-like homologue 9 mutation and interferes with normal skeletal muscle through a novel pathogenetic mechanism is identified. Expand
Distal myopathies
TLDR
These findings have important implications for future genetic linkage and gene expression studies and for the diagnostic approach to patients with a distal myopathy phenotype and hold promise for the eventual development of therapies for this group of disorders. Expand
MOLECULAR GENETICS OF TIBIAL MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY (TMD) AND A NOVEL DISTAL MYOPATHY
TLDR
This thesis is based on the following original articles, which are referred to in the text by their Roman numerals:. Expand

  • Current Neurology and Neuroscience Reports

TLDR
Besides the usual investigations, including electromyography and muscle biopsy, muscle imaging is very important in defining the precise pattern of muscle involvement and the list of possible underlying genes can be tracked down to minimal number allowing for specific genetic testing. Expand
Mutations in the slow skeletal muscle fiber myosin heavy chain gene (MYH7) cause laing early-onset distal myopathy (MPD1).
TLDR
It is demonstrated that heterozygous mutations toward the 3' end of MYH7 cause Laing-type early-onset distal myopathy, the fourth distal-myopathy gene to have been identified. Expand
Genetics and pathogenesis of distal muscular dystrophies.
  • B. Udd
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Advances in experimental medicine and biology
  • 2009
TLDR
The fact that the majority of defects in distal muscular dystrophies are due to structural and functional components of the sarcomere is intriguing but so far it does not provide further clues for understanding or for therapeutic approaches. Expand
Distal myopathies – New genetic entities expand diagnostic challenge
  • B. Udd
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Neuromuscular Disorders
  • 2012
TLDR
Based on the combination of age at onset, mode of inheritance, pathology and muscle imaging, the number of underlying candidate genes for a certain disease can be significantly reduced, which is of help for the molecular genetic approach. Expand
Gene locus ambiguity in posterior urethral valves/prune-belly syndrome
TLDR
A consanguineous family with four male descendants affected by PUV and a healthy girl, suggestive of autosomal recessive inheritance is presented, and a second genetic model based on the assumption of a male-limited phenotype and the girl being carrier of the genetic defect without expressing the phenotype is applied. Expand
Distal muscular dystrophies.
  • B. Udd
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Handbook of clinical neurology
  • 2011
TLDR
Increasing numbers of reports suggest increasing awareness of distal phenotypes in muscular dystrophy, and many of the genes involved in distal dystrophies code for sarcomeric proteins have remained unknown. Expand
Neuromuscular disease: muscle.

TLDR
The proposed LARGE can functionally bypass alpha-dystroglycan glycosylation defects in distinct congenital muscular dystrophies in autosomal-recessive inclusion-body myopathy. Expand

Genetic linkage of Welander distal myopathy to chromosome 2p13
TLDR
It is reported here that the disease is linked to chromosome 2p13 and the WDM region overlaps with the linkage region for Miyoshi myopathy and limb‐girdle muscular dystrophy 2B, providing evidence for the involvement of a single locus for WDM. Expand
A distinct phenotype of distal myopathy in a large Finnish family
TLDR
Seven patients with distal myopathy belonging to a Finnish family with early involvement of the small muscles of the hands, gluteus medium, and both anterior and posterior muscle compartments of the legs are studied. Expand
Autosomal dominant distal myopathy not linked to the known distal myopathy loci
TLDR
The clinical and pathological features appear distinct from other previously described but genetically-undetermined autosomal dominant distal myopathies, suggesting the existence of at least one moredistal myopathy locus. Expand
A novel autosomal dominant distal myopathy with early respiratory failure: Clinico‐pathologic characteristics and exclusion of linkage to candidate genetic loci
TLDR
A novel autosomal dominant myopathy presenting in mid–adult life with tibialis anterior weakness is described, confirming that the disorder in this family is both genetically and phenotypically distinct. Expand
Molecular genetic investigation of autosomal dominant muscular dystrophy
This thesis contributes to the Human Genome Project by adding detail to the physical and genetic maps of the human genome, and by identifying a strong candidate gene for a form of distal myopathy.Expand
Welander distal myopathy outside the Swedish population: phenotype and genotype
TLDR
Haplotype analysis with the five polymorphic markers that make up the common core haplotype revealed that this haplotype is also co-segregating in the Finnish patients and a common ancestry is therefore further supported for patients with Welander distal myopathy. Expand
Tibial muscular dystrophy is a titinopathy caused by mutations in TTN, the gene encoding the giant skeletal-muscle protein titin.
TLDR
Immunohistochemical analysis using two exon-specific antibodies directed to the M-line region of titin demonstrated the specific loss of carboxy-terminal titin epitopes in the TMD muscle samples that were studied, thus implicating a functional defect of theM-line titin in the genesis of the T MD disease phenotype.

Tibial muscular dystrophy in a Belgian family
TLDR
A Belgian family with autosomal dominant, late‐onset, distal myopathy with selective foot extensor muscle involvement of the lower legs and a disease‐specific, heterozygous point mutation in the last exon, Mex6, of the titin gene is reported, suggesting that titinopathies may occur in various populations.

Tibial muscular dystrophy. Late adult-onset distal myopathy in 66 Finnish patients.
TLDR
Tibial muscular dystrophy might represent a new form of distal myopathy and it is rather common, at least in Finland, and Pedigree data suggest autosomal dominant inheritance. Expand
