Clinical expression of Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy with respect to manifestation in the area of Xp21.2 - locus which codifies dystrophin synthesis
The role of dystrophin in various clinical presentations of muscular dystrophy is described. Dystrophin is a very complex protein, and the gene coding its synthesis is one of the largest ones in the human genome, occupying about 1 percent of the X-chromosome. Deletions, duplications or point mutations of this huge gene may result in various clinical manifestations ranging from mild muscular fatigue to lethal forms of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
