The Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy gene and protein product dystrophin

Abstract:

In recent years, the molecular understanding of human inherited disorders has been advanced by the identification of genes and their protein products for diseases that had been defined only by clinical and pathologic descriptions. The practical implications of these findings are demonstrated by the progress in X-linked muscular dystrophy.
