Dystroglycan contributes to the formation of multiple dystrophin-like complexes in brain.

Abstract

In muscle, dystrophin anchors a complex of proteins at the cell surface which includes alpha-dystroglycan, beta-dystroglycan, syntrophins and dystrobrevins. Mutations in the dystrophin gene lead to muscular dystrophy and mental retardation. In contrast to muscle, little is known about the localization and the molecular interactions of dystrophin and… (More)
