Abstract

Intramembrane particles in the freeze-fractured faces of erythrocyte membranes from persons with several different types of muscular dystrophy are examined. The density of particles in the protoplasmic face was lower than that of controls, although not at a statistically significant level. No altered pattern of aggregation of these particles was observed.
