Mutations in BIN1 associated with centronuclear myopathy disrupt membrane remodeling by affecting protein density and oligomerization.
 

Author(s): Tingting Wu, Zheng Shi, Tobias Baumgart

Journal:

 

The regulation of membrane shapes is central to many cellular phenomena. Bin/Amphiphysin/Rvs (BAR) domain-containing proteins are key players for membrane remodeling during endocytosis, cell migration, and endosomal sorting. BIN1, which contains an N-BAR domain, is assumed to be essential ...

Reducing dynamin 2 expression rescues X-linked centronuclear myopathy.
 

Author(s): Belinda S Cowling, Thierry Chevremont, Ivana Prokic, Christine Kretz, Arnaud Ferry, Catherine Coirault, Olga Koutsopoulos, Vincent Laugel, Norma B Romero, Jocelyn Laporte

Journal: J. Clin. Invest.. 2014 Mar;124(3):1350-63.

 

Centronuclear myopathies (CNM) are congenital disorders associated with muscle weakness and abnormally located nuclei in skeletal muscle. An autosomal dominant form of CNM results from mutations in the gene encoding dynamin 2 (DNM2), and loss-of-function mutations in the gene encoding ...

Dynamin 2 the rescue for centronuclear myopathy.
 

Author(s): Alexis R Demonbreun, Elizabeth M McNally

Journal: J. Clin. Invest.. 2014 Mar;124(3):976-8.

 

Centronuclear myopathy is a lethal muscle disease. The most severe form of the disease, X-linked centronuclear myopathy, is due to mutations in the gene encoding myotubularin (MTM1), while mutations in dynamin 2 (DNM2) and amphiphysin 2/BIN1 (AMPH2) cause milder forms of myopathy. ...
