First Clinical and Myopathological Description of a Myofibrillar Myopathy with Congenital Onset and Homozygous Mutation in FLNC


ABSTRACT: Filamin C (encoded by the FLNC gene) is a large actin-cross-linking protein involved in shaping the actin cytoskeleton in response to signaling events both at the sarcolemma and at myofibrillar Z-discs of cross-striated muscle cells. Multiple mutations in FLNC are associated with myofibrillar myopathies of autosomal dominant inheritance. Here, we describe a boy with congenital onset of generalized muscular hypotonia and muscular weakness, delayed motor development but no cardiac involvement associated with a homozygous FLNC mutation affecting the rod domain of the protein. To demonstrate pathogenicity of this homozygous FLNC-mutation described, ultra-morphological, proteomic and functional investigations were performed in addition to immunological studies of known marker proteins for dominant filaminopathies. Our results showed that the mutant protein is expressed to similar quantities as the wildtype variant in control skeletal muscle fibres, alters the proteomic signature of quadriceps muscle, and results in the presence of ultrastructural perturbations. Moreover, comparable findings for filaminopathy marker proteins were found in both, our homozygous and a dominant case. The mutant protein is less stable and more prone to degradation by proteolytic enzymes than the wildtype variant. These combined findings extend the currently recognized clinical, genetic and biochemical spectrum of filaminopathies. The unusual congenital presentation of the disease indicates that homozygosity for a mutation in filamin C severely aggravates the phenotype.
