  • Current Research on Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy

    488 Words  | 2 Pages

    Current Research on Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy Duchenne's muscular dystrophy is the result of a defective gene on the X chromosome. This gene is responsible for production of the muscle protein dystrophin. Dystrophin is an integral part of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex which bears the brunt of the force generated during muscular contraction. When dystrophin is not produced, the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex (DCG) is not present. Absence of the DCG leads to tears in the muscle
