Actin-Accumulation Myopathy

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 02 May 2022

Actin-accumulation myopathy is a disorder that mainly influences skeletal muscles, which are muscle mass that the body uses for movement. People with actin-accumulation myopathy have severe muscle mass weak point and inadequate muscle tone throughout the body. The serious muscle weak point that occurs in actin-accumulation myopathy additionally impacts the muscular tissues used for breathing. People with this disorder might take shallow breaths, specifically during rest, leading to a scarcity of oxygen and a buildup of carbon dioxide in the blood. The name actin-accumulation myopathy derives from particular build-ups in muscle cells of filaments composed of a protein called actin. When muscle tissue is seen under a microscopic lense, these filaments can be seen.
