In LGMD2B, a mutation within the DYSF gene abrogates protein expression and is believed to cause the muscle dystrophy [2].
Since western blot analysis of muscle showed a deficit of dysferlin, the patient was finally diagnosed with LGMD2B.
Several LGMD subtypes have recently been identified based upon mutations of certain genes [7-12]; for example, mutations in the calpain 3 and dysferlin genes cause LGMD2A and LGMD2B, respectively.
