Defects of dystrophin

Defects of dystrophin

  • A spectrum of muscle disease caused by mutations in the DMD gene, which encodes the protein dystrophin.

  • The mild end of the spectrum

  • asymptomatic increase in serum concentration of creatine phosphokinase (CK)

  • muscle cramps with myoglobinuria

  • isolated quadriceps myopathy

  • The severe end of the spectrum: progressive muscle diseases

  • Duchenne/Becker muscular dystrophy (skeletal muscle)

  • DMD-associated dilated cardiomyopathy (heart)


Duchenne muscular dystrophy dmd

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD)

  • Normal for the first two years of life

  • Symptoms present before age 5 years

  • Progressive symmetrical muscular weakness, proximal greater than distal, often with calf hypertrophy

  • Wheelchair-dependency before age 13 years

  • Unlikely to survive beyond age of 20 years

  • Die of respiratory failure or cardiomyopathy

  • Modest decrease in IQ (~20 points)

  • Prevalence: 1/5,000 males


Becker muscular dystrophy bmd

Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD)

  • Progressive symmetrical muscle weakness and atrophy, proximal greater than distal, often with calf hypertrophy (weakness of quadriceps femoris may be the only sign)

  • Activity-induced cramping (present in some individuals)

  • Flexion contractures of the elbows (if present, late in the course)

  • Wheelchair dependency (if present, after age 16 years)

  • Preservation of neck flexor muscle strength

  • (differentiates BMD from DMD)

  • Prevalence: 1/18,000 males


Dmd associated dilated cardiomyopathy

DMD-associated dilated cardiomyopathy

  • Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) with congestive heart failure, with males typically presenting between ages 20 and 40 years and females presenting later in life

  • Usually no clinical evidence of skeletal muscle disease; may be classified as "subclinical" BMD

  • Rapid progression to death in several years in males and slower progression over a decade or more in females


Molecular genetics inheritance

Molecular Genetics: inheritance

  • Incidence DMD:

    • 1:3300 live male births

    • Calculated mutation rate 10-4

    • Given a sperm production rate of 8x107 sperm/day: sperm with new mutation is produced every 10 seconds by normale male!


Molecular genetics inheritance1

Molecular Genetics: inheritance

  • X-linked recessive disorder (Xp21.2)

  • 1/3 of cases: new mutations

  • 2/3 have carrier mother


Molecular genetics inheritance2

Molecular Genetics: inheritance

  • Carrier mother:

    • majority: no clinical manifestations

    • 70 % has slightly elevated serum creatine kinase

    • Random inactivation of X-chromosome 

      • ~19 % of adult female carriers have some muscle weakness

      • 8% has life-threatening cardiomyopathy and severe muscle weakness

  • Females with DMD (rare):

    • Nonrandom X-inactivation

    • Turner syndrome (45,X)

    • X; autosome translocation


Molecular genetics inheritance3

Molecular Genetics: inheritance

  • DMD

  • Lethal

  • gene is not transmitted

  • 1/3 of cases: new mutations

  • 2/3 have carrier mother

BMD

Non-lethal

gene is transmitted

high proportion of BMD cases is inherited, only 10% new mutations


Molecular genetics

Molecular Genetics

  • Gene: DMD

    • the largest known human gene (1,5% of X-chromosome)

    • 2.4 Mb of DNA

    • comprises 79 exons

    • at least four promoters

    • differential splicing  tissue-specific, developmentally regulated isoforms

  • Protein: dystrophin

    • part of a protein complex that links the cytoskeleton with membrane proteins that in turn bind with proteins in the extracellular matrix

    • expressed in skeletal and cardiac muscle, brain


Dystrophin complex major functions

Dystrophin complex:major functions

  • maintenance of muscle membrane integrity

  • correct positioning of proteins in the complex, so that they function correctly

  • ion channels and signaling molecules  participation in cell-cell and/or cell-substrate recognition


Genotype phenotype correlations

Genotype-phenotype correlations

  • lack of dystrophin expression: DMD

    • very large deletions absence of dystrophin expression

    • mutations that disrupt reading frame (stop mutation, splicing mutation, deletion, duplication)  severely truncated dystrophin that is degraded

  • remaining dystrophin production (abnormal quality or quantity): BMD

    • deletions or duplications that juxtapose in-frame exons

    • some splicing mutations

    • most non-truncating single-base changes that result in translation of a protein product with intact N and C termini.

Molecular genetics2

Molecular Genetics

  • Distribution of deletions: clustered in 2 regions

    • 5’ half (exon 2-20) (30%)

    • exons 44-53 (70%)

Testing2

Testing

  • Molecular genetic testing

    • Deletion/duplication analysis

      • Multiplex PCR, southern blotting and FISH (deletions)

      • Southern blotting and quantitative PCR (duplications)

      • MLPA (deletions/duplications)

    • Mutation scanning and sequence analysis

      • Small deletions/insertions, single base changes, splice mutations


Multiplex pcr

Multiplex PCR

Multiplex PCR analysis of dystrophin gene deletions. Exons A, B, C, and D are amplified in a single PCR reaction (arrows indicate PCR primers). The products (shown below each exon) are separated by size on an agarose gel and are visualized


Multiplex pcr1

Multiplex PCR

Multiplex PCR analysis of exons 51, 12, 44, and 4 of the dystrophin gene. Bands corresponding with each exon are indicated at the right. Patient sample is in lane 2, showing an exon 51 deletion. Lane 1 is a control, showing all four bands. Other lanes contain samples for other males.


Genetic counseling

Genetic counseling

  • The father of an affected male will not have the disease nor will he be a carrier of the mutation.

  • A woman with an affected son and one other affected relative in the maternal line is an obligate heterozygote.

  • A woman with more than one affected son and no other family history of a dystrophinopathy has either:

    • A germline mutation (i.e., a DMD disease-causing mutation present in each of her cells); or

    • Germline mosaicism (i.e., mosaicism for a DMD disease-causing mutation that includes her germline)


Genetic counseling1

Genetic counseling

  • If the proband is the only affected family member

  • the proband has a de novoDMD disease-causing mutation as a result of one of the following:

    • The mutation occurred in the egg at the time of the proband's conception and is therefore present in every cell of the proband's body. In this instance, the proband's mother does not have a DMD disease-causing mutation and no other family member is at risk.

    • The mutation occurred after conception and is thus present in some but not all cells of the proband's body (somatic mosaicism). In this instance, the likelihood that the mother is a heterozygote is low.


Genetic counseling2

Genetic counseling

  • the proband's mother has a de novoDMD disease-causing mutation. Approximately 2/3 of mothers of males with DMD and no family history of DMD are carriers.

  • The mechanisms by which a de novoDMD disease-causing mutation could have occurred in the mother are the following:

    • The mutation occurred in the egg or sperm at the time of her conception (germline mutation) and is thus present in every cell of her body and detectable in DNA extracted from leukocytes.

    • The mutation is present in some but not all cells of her body (somatic mosaicism) and may or may not be detectable in DNA extracted from leukocytes.

    • The mutation is present in her egg cells only (termed "germline mosaicism") and is not detectable in DNA extracted from a blood sample. The likelihood of germline mosaicism in this instance is 15%-20%. Consequently, each of her offspring has an increased risk of inheriting the DMD disease-causing mutation


Genetic counseling3

Genetic counseling

  • 3. The proband's mother has inherited a DMD mutation from one of the following:

    • Her mother, who is a carrier

    • Her mother or her father, who has somatic mosaicism

    • Her mother or her father, who has germline mosaicism


Two types of pedigrees encountered in families with duchenne or becker dystrophy

Two types of pedigrees encountered in families with Duchenne or Becker dystrophy.

mother has a 66% risk of being a carrier, and his sister, therefore, a 33% risk

two obligate carrier females and a woman at 50% risk based on family history.
