dystroglycan

(= 156DAG) Complex composed of two proteins, a and b -dystroglycans (formerly known as 156DAG and 43DAG/A3a respectively) derived from a single precursor by proteolytic cleavage. b -Dystroglycan is a transmembrane protein that associates with dystrophin in the cytoplasm and a -dystroglycan, an extracellular glycoprotein, on the exterior face. a -dystroglycan binds to dystrophin, thus linking actin through dystrophin and b -dystroglycan to the extracellular matrix. Also associates with dystrophin. Dystrophin deficiency leads to a deficiency in the appearance of these proteins on the sarcolemma, even though they are not themselves defective. ...

Dystroglycan

Dystroglycan is a protein that in humans is encoded by the DAG1 gene. Dystroglycan is one of the dystrophin-associated glycoproteins, which is encoded by a 5.5 kb transcript in Homo sapiens on chromosome 3. There are two exons that are separated by a large intron. The spliced exons code for a protein product that is finally cleaved into two non-co...
