This image is a visual display of the different types of mutations of the dystrophin gene that result in different forms of musuclar dystrophy. The first reading frame is that of a normal dystrophin gene and can be compared to the second reading frame that reflects a point mutation in which one of the bases has been altered, resulting in an abnormal production of dystrophin. This type of mutation results in what is clinically known as Becker’s Muscular Dystrophy (BMD). The second reading frame can then be further compared to the final reading frame that has a point deletion mutation, resulting in a new reading frame for this particular gene. The end result is a truncated protein product that is known as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).
