Xlinked FDCM

X-linked FDCM leading to pure DCM is associated with mutations in the cytoskeletal protein dystrophin, encoded by DYS. Mutations were identified in Duchenne and Becker-type muscular dystrophy, in which DCM is a constant feature. Mutations in tafazzin, a protein of unknown function encoded by TAZ, result in early-onset DCM with lethality in infants and Barth syndrome. Emerin, an integral protein of the inner nuclear membrane binding to lamin A/C, is encoded by EMD and is associated with X-linked Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (XL-EDMD).
