Sequence analysis of p20D7-FC4 (1.6 cular disorder characterized by a highly variable clinical pheno- kb) and p20D7-SN10 (0.8 kb) indicates that the latter clone is type. Symptoms include myotonia, progressive weakness and contained entirely within the former, and p20D7-FC4 contains a wasting of muscles, cardiac conduction defects, cataracts, and dia- long poly A stretch indicative of the 38 end of the transcript. This betes (Harper 1989). The underlying genetic mutation in this dis- gene has been designated 20D7. There is a strong Kozak consensus ease is an expanded triplet repeat sequence (CTG) located within sequence (Kozak 1987) at nucleotides 29 http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Mammalian Genome Springer Journals
