Intermediate filament (IF) proteins and the dystrophin-associated protein complex (DPC) play important roles in cardiac and skeletal muscle. Both systems are mutated in several different forms of inherited muscular dystrophy and cardiomyopathy. Recently two articles have been published that propose a physical link between the DPC and the IF network in muscle. Two novel IF proteins, syncoilin and desmuslin, have been identified as binding partners for the dystrophin-associated protein, alpha… CONTINUE READING
