The distribution of deletion breakpoints in the dystrophin gene was studied in a series of subjects belonging to different European populations. The data, obtained from the literature or directly from the present study, refer to population samples from France, Finland, Germany, Italy, Netherland, Switzerland, and U.K. (England, Scotland, Wales). In total, 1516 breakpoints were assigned to different introns, 359 in the region encompassing the first 40 exons and 1157 (76%) in the distal part of… CONTINUE READING
