Myotonic dystrophy: A study of the expression of the myotonic dystrophy gene in affected tissues and cells.

Luc. Sabourin
Recently, the molecular basis of myotonic dystrophy(DM) has been characterized as an unstable trinucleotide CTG repeat amplification in the 3' untranslated region of a gene encoding a protien with serine/threonine kinase activity. As a first step towards understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying DM, we have analyzed the amplification of the CTG repeat and the DM kinase (DMK) mRNA steady state levels in tissues and cell lines obtained from normal and congenital DM individuals. We have...
