Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Myofibrillar myopathies constitute a rare group of congenital neuromuscular disorders, frequently associated with mutations in Z-disc proteins such as myotilin. Myotilin location and interactions with other Z-disc proteins are clearly defined, but its role in the regulation of muscle structure and function remains unknown. The present study aims at investigating this specific role of myotilin. METHODS: Skeletal and cardiac muscles were collected from adult mice with a targeted deletion of myotilin (myo(-/-)) and wild-type animals (myo(+/+)). RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Similar skeletal and cardiac muscle weights were observed in myo(-/-) and myo(+/+) mice. At the muscle cell level, the size and force production of single membrane permeabilized fibers were identical between myo(-/-) and myo(+/+) rodents. Thus, myotilin does not have a significant influence on muscle mass, muscle fiber size, or regulation of muscle contraction. Alternatively, compensatory over-expressions of other elements including proteins from the same subfamily, or Z-disc proteins such as telethonin, or intermediate filaments may compensate for the lack of myotilin.
