Evaluation of intracellular calcium in golden retriever muscular dystrophy
The present study had the objective of evaluating calcium accumulations in muscle fibers and their correlation with the canine muscular dystrophy. After the deaths of the animals (13 dystrophic and 3 non-dystrophic), samples ...

The value of dog for knowledge of human Duchenne muscular dystrophy: New findings in pathogenesis and therapeutic advances
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most devastating form of inherited muscular dystrophy in men. The loss of dystrophin causes progressive weakness and degeneration of skeletal and cardiac muscle leading to the ...
Deletion Analysis of 15 exons located outside and inside a “Hot Spot” in the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy gene in Duchenne’s Muscular dystrophy patientsAnálisis de deleciones en 15 exones situados dentro y fuera del hot spot mutacional del gen de la distrofina en pacientes con distrofia muscular de Duchenne

Enhanced urinary spontaneous luminescence in duchenne muscular dystrophy
Urinary spontaneous visible luminescence is enhanced in children with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). This result is indicative of systemic oxidative stress in DMD patients. It is proposed that measurement of the urinary ...
Ringo: Discordance between the molecular and clinical manifestation in a Golden Retriever Muscular Dystrophy dog
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTDAMSTERDAM, 2010)
Of the various genetic homologues to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), the Golden Retriever Muscular Dystrophy (GRMD) dog, which presents a variable but usually severe and progressive muscle weakness, has the closest ...
Possible role of apamin‐sensitive K+ channels in myotonic dystrophy
Myotonic muscular dystrophy is a genetic disease characterized mainly by muscle atrophy and myotonia, a repetitive electrical activity of muscle. In the present study, the possible role of apamin‐sensitive K+ channels in ...
Muscular Dystrophy in Dogs: Does the Crossing of Breeds Influence Disease Phenotype?
(Sage Publications Inc, 2011-05-01)
Golden Retriever (GR) muscular dystrophy is an inherited degenerative muscle disease that provides an excellent model for Duchenne muscular dystrophy in humans. This study defined the histopathologic lesions, including the ...
