Variants in the skeletal muscle ryanodine receptor 1 gene (RYR1) result in a spectrum of RYR1-related disorders.
From 47 affected individuals, authors aimed to elucidate correlations between genotype, protein structure and clinical phenotype in this population.
Motor deficits were most apparent in the MFM-32 D1 domains, [median (IQR) 85.4 (18.8)% of maximum score] and recessive cases exhibited significantly greater overall motor function impairment compared to dominant/de novo cases [79.7 (18.8)% vs. 87.5 (17.7)% of maximum score, p = 0.03].
