what mutations cause CCD central core disease

Investigators have identified the mechanism by which muscle abnormalities develop in mice with a central core disease-causing genetic mutation and a CCD-like disease

Since 1993 — when mutations in the RYR1 gene were first linked to central core disease (CCD) — researchers have been trying to figure out exactly how these mutations cause the disease and what can be done to combat their deleterious effects. Now, investigators in the United States, Canada and Germany have added an important piece to the CCD puzzle, through careful studies of mice with a...
