  • Function
    Component of the sarcoglycan complex, a subcomplex of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex which forms a link between the F-actin cytoskeleton and the extracellular matrix.
  • Tissue specificity
    Highest expression in heart and skeletal muscle. Low expression in brain, kidney, placenta, pancreas and lung. High expression in fetal brain. Also found in fetal lung, kidney and liver.
  • Involvement in disease
    Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy 2E
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the sarcoglycan beta/delta/gamma/zeta family.
  • Post-translational
    Disulfide bonds are present.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane, sarcolemma. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton.

  • beta Sarcoglycan antibody (ab55683) used in immunohistochemistry at 3ug/ml on formalin fixed and paraffin embedded human heart.
  • beta Sarcoglycan antibody (ab55683) at 1ug/lane + MCF-7 cell lysate at 25ug/lane.
  • Overlay histogram showing A549 cells stained with ab55683 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab55683, 0.5µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG2a [ICIGG2A] (ab91361, 1µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line). Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.

    Please note that Abcam do not have any data for use of this antibody on non-fixed cells. We welcome any customer feedback.
