A fusion peptide directs enhanced systemic dystrophin exon skipping and functional restoration in dystrophin-deficient mdx mice.
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is caused by mutations in the DMD gene that abolish the synthesis of dystrophin protein. Antisense oligonucleotides (AOs) targeted to trigger excision of an exon bearing a mutant premature stop codon in the DMD transcript have been shown to skip the mutated exon and partially restore functional dystrophin protein in dystrophin-deficient mdx mice. To fully exploit the therapeutic potential of this method requires highly efficient systemic AO delivery to multip...Expand abstract
