    Mutations in any of the three collagen 6A genes (COL6A1, COL6A2, and COL6A3) are responsible for Bethlem myopathy (BM) and Ullrich's congenital muscular dystrophy (UCMD). Diagnostic DNA testing in these conditions is difficult because of the large size of the genes involved and the frequent...

    Background: The molecular basis of Meesmann’s epithelial corneal dystrophy (MECD) has recently been attributed to mutations in the cornea specific keratin genes KRT3 and KRT12. The mechanisms by which these mutations cause the Meesmann’s phenotype are not clear. This study presents...

    The muscular dystrophies are a diverse group of genetic disorders without an effective treatment. Because they are caused by mutations in various genes, the most direct way to treat them involves correcting the underlying gene defect (ie, gene therapy). Such a gene therapy approach involves...

    Muscular myopathies are a heterogeneous group of disorders caused by a number of factors. Many muscular myopathies are of genetic origin, especially muscular dystrophies (MDs) caused by mutations in any of the large num-ber of genes (Emery 2002). Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies are...
