Muscular Dystrophy (ATC-401, 402, 403)

Duchene muscular dystrophy is an inherited X-linked disease caused by mutations in the dystrophin gene, which leads to sarcolemmal disruption, cytosolic calcium channel activation and progressive muscle wasting[7]. Our autophagy-regulating compounds can inhibit the excessive degradation of actin and other cytoskeletons, thereby halting muscle wasting as a potential cure for Duchene muscular dystrophy.
