A change in the LTBP4 protein gene reduces muscle-damaging signals in mice with a disease resembling LGMD2C

posted on November 17, 2009 - 5:00pm
New research has shown that a change in a gene not previously connected to type 2C limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD2C) modifies the severity of the disease in mice and is likely to do the same in people with this and perhaps with related types of muscular dystrophy.
