Abstract: Nemaline Myopathy (NM) is a rare genetic disorder that encompasses a large spectrum of myopathies characterized by hypotonia and generalized muscle weakness. To date, mutations in thirteen different genes have been associated with NM. The most frequently responsible genes are NEB (50% of cases) and ACTA1 (15-25% of cases). In this report all known NM related genes were screened by Next Generation Sequencing in five Spanish patients in order to genetically confirm the clinical and histological diagnosis of NM. Four mutations in NEB (c.17779_17780delTA, c.11086A>C, c.21076C>T and c.2310+5G>A) and one mutation in ACTA1 (c.871A>T) were found in four patients. Three of the four mutations in NEB were novel. A cDNA sequencing assay of the nove/variants c.17779_17780delTA, c.11086A>C and c.2310+5G>A revealed that the intronic variant c.2310+5G>A affected the splicing process. Mutations reported here could help clinicians and geneticists in NM diagnosis.
