The role of utrophin in the potential therapy of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Abstract:

Duchenne muscular dystrophy is an X-linked recessive muscle wasting disease caused by the absence of the muscle cytoskeletal protein, dystrophin. Dystrophin is a member of the spectrin superfamily of proteins and is closely related in sequence similarity and functional motifs to three proteins that constitute the dystrophin related protein family, including the autosomal homologue, utrophin.
