Titel:
Diagnostic approach for FSHD revisited: SMCHD1 mutations cause FSHD2 and act as modifiers of disease severity in FSHD1. 
Abstract:
Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) is an autosomal dominant muscular disorder with a wide clinical variability. Contractions of the D4Z4 macrosatellite repeat on chromosome 4q35 are the molecular basis of the pathophysiology. Recently, in a subset of patients without D4Z4 repeat contractions, variants in the SMCHD1 gene have been identified that lead to hypomethylation of D4Z4 and thus DUX4 transcription, which causes FSHD type 2. In this study, we have screened 55 FSHD1-negative and...    »
