Gene Mapping Studies

Southern analysis was used to map the FSHD locus to chromosome 4q35[2,3] by using probe p13E-11 derived from the complex locus D4F104S1.[3] Indeed, the FSHD locus is closely linked to the locus D4F104S1 (Fig. 1). However, there are some evidence of genetic heterogeneity in FSHD because about 5% of families manifest an inherited pattern that is unlinked to 4q35. A provisional linkage to chromosome 15 has been suggested, but the gene still remains to be identified.

Getting Started With Dumbbells

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
