Congenital muscular dystrophies.
Freiburg, Germany. In Handb Clin Neurol, 2012
This chapter reviews the most common forms of congenital muscular dystrophies, including laminin α-2 (merosin) deficiency, Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy, fukutin-related proteinopathy, rigid spine syndrome, and glycosylation disorders of α-dystroglycan.

Recent studies have suggested that a phosphodiester-linked structure on O-mannose is also important for the laminin-binding activity and that mutations in other causative genes of α-dystroglycanopathy, such as fukutin (originally identified as the gene responsible for FCMD) and LARGE, disrupt the post-phosphoryl structure.
