Like all mammalian tissues, skeletal muscle is dependent on membrane traffic for
proper development and homeostasis. This fact is underscored by the observation
that several human diseases of the skeletal muscle are caused by mutations in
gene products of the membrane trafficking machinery. An examination of these
diseases and the proteins that underlie them is instructive both in terms of
determining disease pathogenesis and of understanding the normal aspects of
muscle biology regulated by membrane traffic. This review highlights our current
understanding of the trafficking genes responsible for human myopathies.
