New aspect of the research on limb-girdle muscular dystrophy 2A: a molecular biologic and biochemical approach to pathology.


p94, a muscle-specific member of the calpain family, also called calpain3 (CAPN3), has been identified as the gene product responsible for limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2A (LGMD2A). To elucidate the molecular mechanism of LGMD2A, the effects of missense point mutations found in LGMD2A on the unique properties of p94 were studied. All of the mutants… (More)
