Composed of the motor neuron → axon → muscle fibers.
A group of congenital muscle diseases in which muscle fibers are unusually susceptible to damage and become progressively weaker. The most common types of muscular dystrophies are due to a genetic deficiency of the muscle protein dystrophin.
An autoimmune disease that affects the neuromuscular junction, interrupting the communication between nerve and muscle, thereby causing muscle weakness.
