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 ...
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 ...
