They hypothesized that the reduced SIX5 levels may contribute to the male reproductive defects in DM1. In most of these patients, the onset ttipo the disease was congenital. Dysphagia is usually manageable with conservative dietary measures. Myotonic dystrophy type 1 is associated with nuclear foci of mutant RNA, sequestration of muscleblind proteins and deregulated alternative splicing in neurons.

They did not observe a single case in which the age at onset of DM in the symptomatic offspring was later than the age at onset in the parent, although Harley et al. For a variety of reasons the authors had found it difficult to obtain molecular proof of homozygosity.

None of these patients were symptomatic.

Making sense of the limb-girdle muscular dystrophies. Aberrantly spliced alpha-dystrobrevin alters alpha-syntrophin binding in myotonic dystrophy type 1. Analysis of congenitally affected cases showed not only that they had on the average the largest repeat sizes, but also that their mothers had larger mean repeat sizes, supporting previous suggestions that a maternal effect is involved. Three patients had marked thickening of the skull, which was associated with ossification of the falx in 2.


They reported a family in which persons in the first 2 generations had mild symptoms and a CTG repeat unit itpo approximately 60 repeats, whereas persons in the third and fourth generations had severe symptoms and a dramatic expansion in allele size–a demonstration of the physical basis of anticipation in myotonic dystrophy.

Additive influence of maternal and offspring DM-kinase gene CTG repeat lengths in the genesis of congenital myotonic dystrophy.

Reduced expression of tau isoforms containing exon 2 was observed at both the mRNA and protein levels. Similar studies by Seznec et al. The gating abnormality deteriorated with increasing age. Ada Hamosh – updated: Timchenko commented on the study of Mahadevan et al. MRI lesions were associated with impaired psychometric performance, but the MRI findings of distroria white matter lesions correlated only very weakly with the molecular findings. Immunohistochemical staining revealed that DM-PK is localized predominantly at sites of neuromuscular and myotendinous junctions of human and rodent skeletal muscles.

A patient with congenital myotonic dystrophy associated with paternal inheritance of CTG repeat expansion. Recombination events that locate myotonic dystrophy distal to APOC2 on 19q.

Neuromuscular disorders

They found that a mutant DMPK 3-prime-UTR, with as few as 57 CTGs, had a negative cis effect on protein expression and resulted in the aggregation of reporter transcripts into discrete nuclear foci.

Using methylation-sensitive restriction enzymes, Steinbach et al. Founder effect in the prevalence of myotonic dystrophy in South Africans: Both parents were affected.


He died at the age of about 36 years, without a male heir, although he had had 6 daughters by his principal wife. CUGBP1 overexpression in mouse skeletal muscle reproduces features of myotonic dystrophy type 1. Contents by Year, Volume and Issue. Intelligence quotient profile in myotonic dystrophy, intergenerational deficit, and correlation with CTG amplification.

However, MYH14 retained normal subcellular localization in DM1 patient muscle, albeit at lower amounts than in controls. In 1 patient it preceded significant muscle weakness by 15 years. A bonus to tip MIMmatch users is the option to sign up for updates on new gene-phenotype relationships.

Periodic ophthalmoscopy is needed to assess posterior capsular cataracts, which may require extraction if vision is impaired significantly–rarely before the third or fourth decade. Both animal models developed cataracts, leading Klesert et al. Myotonia dystrophica; obstetric complications. Contrary to the findings and conclusions of Koch et al. The proliferative capacity of the CDM myoblasts was reduced and a delay in fusion, differentiation, and maturation was observed in the CDM cultures compared with unaffected myoblast cultures.
