Reagents, Molecular Assay, Gene Anomaly, Mutation, SGCA

Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify mutations in the sarcoglycan, alpha (50kDa dystrophin-associated glycoprotein) (SGCA) gene, located at chromosome 17q21, which encodes for a member of a multisubunit protein complex necessary for the stability of muscle fiber membranes and to link the actin cytoskeleton to the extracellular matrix. This genetic mutation has been identified in patients with Duchenne-like muscular dystrophy type 2.
