Clinical and molecular diagnosis of a Costa Rican family with autosomal recessive myotonia congenital (Becker disease) carrying a new mutation in the CLCN1 gene
(Revista de Biología Tropical 56(1) p.1-11, 2006-08-18)
Myotonia congenita is a muscular disease characterized by myotonia, hypertrophy, and stiffness. It is inherited as either autosomal dominant or recessive known as Thomsen and Becker diseases, respectively. Here we confirm ...
Identification and Functional Characterization of CLCN1 Mutations Found in Nondystrophic Myotonia Patients
Mutations in the gene coding for the skeletal muscle Cl− channel (CLCN1) lead to dominant or recessive myotonia. Here, we identified and characterized CLCN1 mutations in Costa Rican patients, who had been clinically diagnosed ...
