This gene encodes a member of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex (DGC). The DGC spans the sarcolemma and is comprised of dystrophin, syntrophin, alpha- and beta-dystroglycans and sarcoglycans. The DGC provides a structural link between the subsarcolemmal cytoskeleton and the extracellular matrix of muscle cells. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode differe...

Summaries for SSPN Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SSPN Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex (DGC). The DGC spans the sarcolemma and is comprised of dystrophin, syntrophin, alpha- and beta-dystroglycans and sarcoglycans. The DGC provides a structural link between the subsarcolemmal cytoskeleton and the extracellular matrix of muscle cells. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different protein isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SSPN Gene

SSPN (Sarcospan) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SSPN include Adrenal Carcinoma and Autosomal Recessive Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2C. Among its related pathways are Muscular Dystrophies and Dystrophin-Glycoprotein Complex.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SSPN Gene

  • Component of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex (DGC), a complex that spans the muscle plasma membrane and forms a link between the F-actin cytoskeleton and the extracellular matrix. Preferentially associates with the sarcoglycan subcomplex of the DGC.
