Again, I'd just want to make medical truths straight, nothing else. Duchenne has NOTHING to do with spinal cord (脊髓). It's a disease of muscle involving one protein called Dystrophin. That protein is one component of a protein complex responsible for connection with extracellular matrix. The detail mechanism is still pending. Many other diseases have implications with that protein, including some cardiomyopathy. Anyway, I'll make no further corrections after this mail. If you guys are insterested in this topic, please go to
and search Duchenne. A lot of information is available. Have a nice day!
