Muscle-specific calpain-3 is phosphorylated in its unique insertion region for enrichment in a myofibril fraction.


CAPN3 (also called p94/calpain-3) is a skeletal muscle-specific calpain, an intracellular cysteine protease. Loss of CAPN3 protease activity and/or structural functions cause limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2A (LGMD2A). However, the precise mechanism of action of CAPN3 in skeletal muscles in vivo remains largely elusive. By studying the protein… (More)
