  1. Identification of Novel Components of the Dystrophin Complex Using C. Elegans
    Hongkyun Kim; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..We will also identify and study the functional mammalian homologues. These findings will improve our understanding of the pathogenesis mechanism of muscular dystrophy in humans and may help to devise new therapeutic strategies. ..
