Neuromuscular disorders

The category of neuromuscular disease (NMD) covers a wide range of different diagnoses with widely varying levels of disability even in people with the same diagnosis. It is difficult, therefore to make specific recommendations that apply generally. The following are recommendations that apply to numerous neuromuscular disorders. These recommendations are designed primarily for patients, carers, general neurologists and non-specialist medical providers. They are also intended to inform neuromuscular specialists particularly regarding frequently asked questions and basic service requirements. In-depth reference links are provided.

Satellite cells are required for the growth, maintenance, and regeneration of skeletal muscle. Quiescent satellite cells possess a primary cilium, a structure that regulates the processing of the GLI family of transcription factors. Here we find that GLI3, specifically, plays a critical role in satellite cell activation. Primary cilia-mediated processing of GLI3 is required to […]

Skeletal muscles fibers are formed by the fusion of hundreds of cells where myonuclei are actively spread at myofibers periphery. Growing evidences supports connections between myonuclear positioning and muscle functionality. How myonuclei localization in muscle fibers contributes to muscle efficiency remains poorly characterized. Here, we show that in developing myofibers, SH3KBP1 scaffolds Endoplasmic Reticulum through […]

Skeletal muscle fibers are large syncytia but it is currently unknown whether gene expression is coordinately regulated in their numerous nuclei. By snRNA-seq and snATAC-seq, we showed that slow, fast, myotendinous and neuromuscular junction myonuclei each have different transcriptional programs, associated with distinct chromatin states and combinations of transcription factors. In adult mice, identified myofiber […]
