Legend
86 deletions and 4 duplications detected in 138 patients (65%) from Tianjin (China); 94 DMD (68.1%), 8 IMD (5.8%), 31 BMD (22.5%) and 5 too young to diagnose (3.6%). Analysis included multiplex PCR (Chamberlain and Beggs sets) and Southern blotting (up to exon 60). Reported by Yuge et al. (1999), Life Sciences 65: 863-869. All mutations have been included in the DMD/BMD deletion/duplication database.

Legend
23 deletions and 5 duplications detected in 67 patients from Hog Kong (China). Analysis included semi-quantitative multiplex PCR (Chamberlain and Beggs sets). DHPLC and MLPA analysis of non-deletion patients identified one deletion and one duplication each. Reported by Lo et al. (2006). All mutations have been included in the DMD/BMD deletion/duplication database.


Yang

In total 41 patients were screened (34 DMD and 7 BMD); 15 (37%) contained deletions when 11 exons were analysed using multiplex PCR.

Legend
23 deletions and 5 duplications were detected in 34 DMD and 7 BMD cases from Taiwan. Analysis was performed using multiplex PCR (exons 1, 3, 6, 8, 13, 17, 43, 47, 50, 52 and 60) by Yang et al. (1994). All mutations have been included in the DMD/BMD deletion/duplication database.
