Brief description:  The dys-1 gene encodes an ortholog of human DMD, which when mutated leads to Duchenne muscular dystrophy (OMIM:310200)or to the milder form Becker muscular dystrophy carried on the X chromosome. Mapping and genetic studies indicate mutations in the gene that encodes dystrophin and two-thirds are deletions of one or more exons in the dystrophin gene.
The gene dys-1 is expressed in C. elegans in body wall muscles, vulva muscles, head muscles and pharygeal muscles.
