Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 53 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 53 kDa).

Target

  • Function
    Probable muscle-intrinsic activator of MUSK that plays an essential role in neuromuscular synaptogenesis. Acts in aneural activation of MUSK and subsequent acetylcholine receptor (AchR) clustering in myotubes. Induces autophosphorylation of MUSK.
  • Tissue specificity
    Preferentially expressed in skeletal muscle and heart Present in thigh muscle, diaphragm and heart but not in the liver or spleen (at protein level).
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in DOK7 are the cause of familial limb-girdle myasthenia autosomal recessive (LGM) [MIM:254300]; also called congenital myasthenic syndrome type 1B or CMS1B. LGM is a congenital myasthenic syndrome characterized by a typical 'limb girdle' pattern of muscle weakness with small, simplified neuromuscular junctions but normal acetylcholine receptor and acetylcholinesterase function.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 IRS-type PTB domain.
    Contains 1 PH domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Cell junction > synapse. Accumulates at neuromuscular junctions.
