Understanding the Pathophysiology of Spinal Muscular Atrophy Skeletal Muscle

Justin Boyer
The disruption of the survival motor neuron (SMN1) gene leads to the children’s genetic disease spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). SMA is characterized by the degeneration of α-motor neurons and skeletal muscle atrophy. Although SMA is primarily considered a motor neuron disease, the involvement of muscle in its pathophysiology has not been ruled out. To gain a better understanding of the involvement of skeletal muscle pathophysiology in SMA, we have developed three aims: to identify cell-specific...
