Abstract

Abstract In order to clarify the possible involvement of the cell surface in the pathogenesis of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, we have examined the behaviour of fibroblasts cultured from Duchenne patients in hydrated collagen lattices. No differences could be found between Duchenne and normal skin fibroblasts, either after initial seeding or following prolonged culture within the collagen gel.
