The most important advances in sarcomeric protein diseases continue to be the identification of mutated genes responsible for human diseases. These have recently included those that encode skeletal muscle alpha-actin in autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive nemaline myopathy, nebulin and slow alpha-tropomyosin in autosomal recessive nemaline myopathy, and desmin and alpha B-crystallin in desminopathies.
