Marfan syndrome (SMF) is an autosomal-dominant systemic disorder of connective tissue, caused by a mutation of fibrillin-1 gene, resulting in changes in the extracellular matrix protein fibrillin-1 found in different organs and tissues. Although poorly studied, muscle abnormalities such as hypoplasia and hypotonia, decreased strength and susceptibility to fatigue are frequent in this sy...
Marfan syndrome is caused by mutations in an autosomal dominant gene encoding fibrillin-1, which is the key structural glycoprotein for microfibrils and act as scaffolding proteins for formation of elastic fibers and elastin deposition. Skeletal muscle alterations are also found in Marfan syndrome, such as reduction in the number and size of myofibers, combined with fibrosis, deposition...
