This problem set covers lecture 16 and 17.1. Describe the structure of the dystrophin protein and point out which regions are mutated inDuchenne's and Becker's Muscular Dystrophies. How do these regions explain the difference inage of onset between the two diseases?2. A HE stain of a patient's hip muscle shows muscle fiber bundles that appear to be somewhatporous; that is, negative space exists between bundles. What can you conclude about thispatient's DMG gene?3. What features of the dystrophin gene allow for a high degree of mutation within the gene?
