Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a progressive muscle wasting disorder caused by the lack of a subsarcolemmal protein, dystrophin. We have previously shown that the dystrophin-related protein, utrophin is able to compensate for the lack of dystrophin in the mdx mouse, the mouse model for DMD. Here, we explore whether utrophin delivered to the limb muscle of dystrophin/utrophin-deficient double knockout (dko) neonatal mice can protect the muscle from subsequent dystrophic damage. Utrophin ...Expand abstract
