Dystroglycan is a central component of dystrophin-glycoprotein complex that is encoded by the DAG1 gene. Dystroglycan links the cytoskeletal structure to the extracellular matrix. Dystroglycan is proteolytically cleaved to 2 functional peptides, α- and β-dystroglycan. β-dystroglycan is a transmembrane protein, which acts as a cell adhesion receptor in human tissues. The interactions between β-dystroglycan and dystrophin and utrophin scaffolds axin to the cytoskeleton. β-dystroglycan has also been reported to play a role in cell adhesion-mediated signaling and is implicated in cell polarity.Product Details

- Dystroglycan is an 895 amino acid protein with a molecular mass of ~97 kD. β-dystroglycan, a cleavage product of dystroglycan, is a 242 amino acid protein with a molecular mass of ~43 kD.
Tissue distribution: Primarily expressed in muscle tissue. Also present in other tissue including CNS.
Cellular distribution: nucleus, plasma membrane, and cytoskeleton.
- β-dystroglycan is involved in a number of processes including laminin and basement membrane assembly, sarcolemmal stability, cell survival, peripheral nerve myelination, nodal structure, cell migration, and epithelial polarization.
- Interacts with dystrophin, utrophin and other cytoskeletal components such as axin.
- Ligand Receptor
