Legend
Deletions in the DMD-gene identified in DMD and BMD patients in Sao Paolo (Brazil, described in Rosenberg et al. [1998]). Deletions were detected using multiplex PCR, i.e. 18-exon Chamberlain and Beggs sets and Southern blotting using cDNA-probes upto exon 60. All mutations have been included in the DMD/BMD deletion/duplication database.

Legend
Deletions in the DMD-gene identified in DMD and BMD patients in Curitiba (Brazil, described in Werneck et al. [2001] and Freund et al. [2007] ). Deletions were detected using multiplex PCR, i.e. 18-exon Chamberlain and Beggs sets and PCR for exons 42 and 53. Samples were also analysed for immunohistochemical DMD staining; all DMD were abnormal with staining being absent in 17/29, residual in 3/29 and scattered in 9/29. Staining in the BMD patients was diffuse and reduced in 10/13, patch discontinuation in the sarcolemma in 2/13 and normal 1/13. The variants have not been included in the DMD/BMD del/dup database.
