|Function||The dystroglycan complex is involved in a number of processes including laminin and basement membrane assembly, sarcolemmal stability, cell survival, peripheral nerve myelination, nodal structure, cell migration, and epithelial polarization. Beta-dystroglycan is a transmembrane protein that plays important roles in connecting the extracellular matrix to the cytoskeleton. Acts as a cell adhesion receptor in both muscle and non-muscle tissues. Receptor for both DMD and UTRN and, through these interactions, scaffolds axin to the cytoskeleton. Also functions in cell adhesion-mediated signaling and implicated in cell polarity.|
|Cellular Location||Alpha-dystroglycan: Secreted, extracellular space|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in a variety of fetal and adult tissues. In epidermal tissue, located to the basement membrane Also expressed in keratinocytes and fibroblasts|
