Abstract: Sarcomere is the basic unit of cardiac and skeletal muscle contraction and its proper function requires an invariant organization of this structure. Mutations in sarcomeric proteins are known to cause increasing number of different cardiac and skeletal muscle diseases. The front line in research on muscle diseases is at present to define the genetic background and pathogenesis of these diseases. The potential for development of effective therapies depends on elucidation of the molecular and... more
