About this work

Description

Duchenne muscular dystrophy pedigree and restriction fragment length polymorphism (rflp) autoradiograph showing molecular deletion (exon missing). The bands on the autoradiograph represent fragments of DNA from the X chromosome which have been cut by enzymes at specific base sequences. This condition is caused by deletion of an exon from the X chromosome.
