Short name: Distrobrevin

Family relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents distrobrevin family, including dystrobrevin alpha/beta from humans and dystrobrevin-1 (dyb-1) from C. elegans. Dyb-1 plays a role in cholinergic transmission and as a functional partner of dystrophin (dys-1), necessary for muscle maintenance [PMID: 14499607]. Mammalian dystrobrevins may be involved in the formation and stability of synapses [PMID: 10747910].
