Western blot analysis of extracts from Jurkat cells (Lane 1), HepG2 cells (Lane 2) and HeLa cells (Lane 3 and lane 4), using SGCA polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB17604). Peptide "+" means "with peptide blocking".
This gene encodes a component of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex (DGC), which is critical to the stability of muscle fiber membranes and to the linking of the actin cytoskeleton to the extracellular matrix. Its expression is thought to be restricted to striated muscle. Mutations in this gene result in type 2D autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq
