We have partially sequenced rabbit skeletal muscle gamma-sarcoglycan, an integral component of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex. Specific antibodies were produced against a gamma-sarcoglycan peptide and used to examine the expression of gamma-sarcoglycan in skeletal muscle of patients with severe childhood autosomal muscular dystrophy linked to chromosome 13q12 (SCARMD). We show by immunofluorescence and Western blotting that in skeletal muscle from these patients gamma-sarcoglycan is… CONTINUE READING
