  • Biallelic variants in the transcription factor PAX7 are a new genetic cause of myopathy

    Disease expressivity varies widely in many genetic disorders, and identifying the underlying modifiers holds great translational potential. Based on its resources as regards technologies and samples, CENTOGENE is uniquely positioned to significantly contribute to pertinent efforts. One recent…

  • SMN-Negative Spinal Muscular Atrophy Panel

    Spinal muscular atrophies (SMAs) are hereditary degenerative disorders of lower motor neurons associated with progressive muscle weakness and atrophy. The onset of muscle weakness ranges from the prenatal period to adolescence or young adulthood, with infantile-onset SMA being the most common…

  • Nemaline Myopathy

    Nemaline myopathy (NEM, NM) is one of the most common congenital myopathies characterized by hypotonia, weakness, and absent deep tendon reflexes. Muscle weakness is usually most severe in the face, the neck flexors, and the proximal limb muscles. Nemaline myopathies (NEM) include at least six forms…
