Becker's Muscular Dystrophy is caused by a defect in the gene which makes the dystrophin protein which is needed to maintain the muscle cells structure and shape, the defect causes an insufficient amount of dystrophin protein being produced which then causes muscle cell death, muscle wastage/weakness and fatigue.
