  • 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
    Expressed in skeletal and heart muscle.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in SGCG are the cause of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2C (LGMD2C) [MIM:253700]. LGMD2C is characterized by progressive muscle wasting from early childhood.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the sarcoglycan beta/delta/gamma/zeta family.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane > sarcolemma. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton.

  • IHC image of gamma Sarcoglycan staining in human heart formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab104478, 10µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
