Summaries for SGCZ Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SGCZ Gene

  • The zeta-sarcoglycan gene measures over 465 kb and localizes to 8p22. This protein is part of the sarcoglycan complex, a group of 6 proteins. The sarcoglycans are all N-glycosylated transmembrane proteins with a short intra-cellular domain, a single transmembrane region and a large extra-cellular domain containing a carboxyl-terminal cluster with several conserved cysteine residues. The sarcoglycan complex is part of the dystrophin-associated glycoprotein complex (DGC), which bridges the inner cytoskeleton and the extra-cellular matrix. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SGCZ Gene

SGCZ (Sarcoglycan Zeta) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SGCZ include Generalized Epilepsy With Febrile Seizures Plus. An important paralog of this gene is SGCD.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SGCZ Gene

  • 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. May play a role in the maintenance of striated muscle membrane stability (By similarity).
