In an article published in the European Journal of Human Genetics (Vol.13, pp. 1254–1260), the authors have extensively characterized the mRNA changes associated with five novel point mutations giving rise to a Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) phenotype, which confirm that Becker arises largely due to alterations in splicing. The results emphasize that mRNA analysis is important in defining Becker mutations and will be of value in assessing various gene therapy strategies.
