Description: The muscular dystrophies are a heterogeneous group of genetically caused muscle degenerative disorders. Our laboratory has had a longstanding research program into the pathogenesis and treatment of the muscular dystrophies. The gene for dystrophin was identified in our laboratory and we continue our work on normal dystrophin function and how it is altered in muscular dystrophy. We have identified mutations in three forms of Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD) and have a better understanding how muscle breaks down in many of the different dystrophies. Our work and that of other groups have lead to improved diagnosis of the different forms of muscular dystrophy.
