Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and the less severe Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) are human X-linked muscle-wasting disorders that have been localized to the band Xp21 by genetic linkage analysis and cytologically detectable abnormalities. A cloned DNA segment, DXS164 (or pERT87), has been shown to detect deletions in the DNA of unrelated DMD and BMD males. Here we present the nucleotide sequence of two highly conserved DNA fragments from the DXS164 locus and their homologous sequences fr...Expand abstract
