Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notesELISA: 1/2000.
    WB: 1/1000. Membrane was incubated with diluted antibody in 5% non fat milk, PBS, 0.04% Tween 20 for 1 hour at room temperature. Predicted molecular weight: 97 kDa (Dystroglycan is expressed as a precursor protein that is cleaved into alpha and beta dystroglycan. The beta dystroglycan fragment is about 43 kDa).

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • RelevanceDystroglycans are essential elements of the neuromuscular junction (NMJ). The gene for dystroglycan is expressed as a precursor protein that is post translationally cleaved into a 156 kDa extracellular peripheral membrane protein called alpha dystroglycan and a 43 kDa transmembrane protein, beta dystroglycan. The latter protein contains a PPxY motif that promotes binding to WW domain containing proteins, such as utrophin and dystrophin. Phosphorylation at tyrosine 892 within the PPxY motif may regulate c Src interactions with beta dystroglycan, as well as inhibit interactions with WW domain proteins. In skeletal muscle, beta dystroglycan is normally localized to the plasma membrane, however phosphorylation of Tyr892 leads to localization of beta dystroglycan to endosomal compartments along with c Src. Thus, phosphorylation at Tyr892 may have important roles in altering the localization of beta dystroglycan during NMJ formation.
