Additional Information
Gene ID 1605
Other Names Dystroglycan, Dystrophin-associated glycoprotein 1, Alpha-dystroglycan, Alpha-DG, Beta-dystroglycan, Beta-DG, DAG1
Target/Specificity The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP14101b was selected from the C-term region of DAG1. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.
Format Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.
PrecautionsThis product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Name DAG1
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

Dystroglycan is a laminin binding component of thedystrophin-glycoprotein complex which provides a linkage betweenthe subsarcolemmal cytoskeleton and the extracellular matrix.Dystroglycan 1 is a candidate gene for the site of the mutation inautosomal recessive muscular dystrophies. The dramatic reduction ofdystroglycan 1 in Duchenne muscular dystrophy leads to a loss oflinkage between the sarcolemma and extracellular matrix, renderingmuscle fibers more susceptible to necrosis. Dystroglycan alsofunctions as dual receptor for agrin and laminin-2 in the Schwanncell membrane. The muscle and nonmuscle isoforms of dystroglycandiffer by carbohydrate moieties but not protein sequence.Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants allencoding the same protein.
