Dystrophinopathies genetic study

Dystrophinopathies genetic study

[DMD]

TOURNAROUND TIME: 6 WEEKS

For DMD, the following techniques can be performed:

  • MLPA (for the detection of deletions/duplications of one or more exons)
  • NGS (able to detect CNVs, point mutations and small in/dels)
RELATED PHENOTYPES
Duchenne muscular dystrophy
Becker muscular dystrophy
X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy
Other DMD-related phenotypes
