Familial hyperkalemic periodic paralysis : a brief review of the adult human skeletal muscle sodium channel and the application of LA-PCR to the SCN4A gene analysis

Recent work has revealed that familial hyperkalemic periodic paralysis, paramyotonia congenita and other non-dystrophic myotonias result from point mutations in the gene encoding the alpha-subunit of the adult human skeletal muscle sodium channel (SCN4A).
