Selective vacuolar degeneration in dystrophin-deficient canine Purkinje fibers despite preservation of dystrophin-associated proteins with overexpression of Dp71.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Respiratory support therapy significantly improves life span in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy; cardiac-related fatalities, including lethal arrhythmias, then become a crucial issue. It is therefore important to more thoroughly understand cardiac involvement, especially pathology of the conduction system, in the larger Duchenne… (More)
