Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.
Related Product Information for
anti-a-Dystroglycan antibody
Dystroglycan is one of the dystrophin-associated glycoproteins, which is encoded by a 5.5kb transcript in Homo sapiens by chromosome 3. There are two exons that are separated by a large intron. The spliced exons codes for a protein product is finally cleaved into two non-covalently associated subunits, alpha (N-terminal) and beta (C-terminal). In general, aberrant expression of dystrophin-associated protein complex underlies the pathogenesis of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Becker muscular dystrophy and severe childhood autosomal recessive muscular dystrophy. Interestingly, no genetic disease has been described for either alpha or beta-dystroglycan. Dystroglycan is widely distributed in non-muscle tissues as well as in muscle tissues. During epithelial morphogenesis of kidney, the dystroglycan complex is shown to act as a receptor for the basement membrane. Dystroglycan expression in Mus musculus brain and neural retina has also been reported. However, the physiological role of dystroglycan in non-muscle tissues has remained unclear.
