Sarcoglycan complex subunit protein (IPR006875)

Short name: Sarcoglycan

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


The dystrophin glycoprotein complex (DGC) is a membrane-spanning complex that links the interior cytoskeleton to the extracellular matrix in muscle. The sarcoglycan complex is a subcomplex within the DGC and is composed of several muscle-specific, transmembrane proteins (alpha-, beta-, gamma-, delta- and zeta-sarcoglycan). The sarcoglycans are asparagine-linked glycosylated proteins with single transmembrane domains. This family contains beta, gamma, delta and zeta members [PMID: 12107060, PMID: 12189167].
