The DYSF geneis located on chromosome 2p13, which spans a genomic region of more than 230 kbp and comprises 55 exons.[sup][1],[2] It encodes a transmembrane protein DYSF which has been linked to membrane repair,[sup][14] Ca [sup]2+ signaling,[sup][15] cell adhesion,[sup][16] and angiogenesis.[sup][17] To date, 510 different mutations in this gene have been reported in the Leiden muscular dystrophy database worldwide (Leiden Muscular Dystrophy pages [c] www.dmd.nl).
The mutations found in patients were determined to be disease-causing by the following criteria: (1) mutations reported in literature, in the HGMD database, Leiden Muscular Dystrophy pages database (www.dmd.nl), or the UMD-DYSF mutations database (www.umd.be/DYSF); (2) novel null mutations, including nonsense mutations, frameshift mutations, canonical [+ or -]1 or 2 splice sites, and single exon or multiexon deletions; (3) novel missense mutations predicted to be disease-causing by a combination of four predictive software programs, including UMD-predictor (predicted as pathogenic/probably pathogenic),[sup][26] Mutation Taster (predicted as disease-causing),[sup][27] PolyPhen-2 (predicted as probably/possibly damaging),[sup][28] and SIFT software (J.
