| Alpha-sarcoglycan ELISA Kit|
|Also known as Alpha-sarcoglycan (Alpha-SG) (50 kDa dystrophin-associated glycoprotein) (50DAG) (Adhalin). |
SGCA: Component of the sarcoglycan complex, a subcomplex of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex which forms a link between the F-actin cytoskeleton and the extracellular matrix. Defects in SGCA are the cause of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2D (LGMD2D); also known as Duchenne- like mu
scular dystrophy autosomal recessive type 2 or severe childhood autosomal recessive muscular dystrophy (SCARMD). LGMD2D is an autosomal recessive degenerative myopathy characterized by progressive muscle wasting from early childhood with loss of independent ambulation by teenage years. Muscle biopsy shows necrosis, decreased immunostaining for alpha sarcoglycan, and adhalin deficiency. The phenotype is less severe than LGMD2C. Belongs to the sarcoglycan alpha/epsilon family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
