SGCA Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
sarcoglycan alpha
50DAG, ADL, DAG2, DMDA2, LGMD2D, SCARMD1, adhalin, alpha-sarcoglycan, 50 kDa dystrophin-associated glycoprotein, 50kD DAG, alpha-SG, dystroglycan-2, limb girdle muscular dystrophy 2D, sarcoglycan, alpha (50kDa dystrophin-associated glycoprotein)
Genomic Location:
Chr 17: 45598390-45608288
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 mus...
