Dystroglycan is a core component of the dystrophin receptor complex in skeletal muscle which links the extracellular matrix to the muscle cytoskeleton. Dystrophin, dystrophin-related protein (DRP, utrophin) and dystroglycan are present not only in muscles but also in the brain. Dystrophin is expressed in certain neuronal populations while DRP is associated with perivascular astrocytes. To gain insights into the function and molecular interactions of dystroglycan in the brain, we examined the… CONTINUE READING
