25959029 we show for the first time localization of alpha-DB2 in nucleoli and Cajal bodies and provide evidence that a-DB2 is involved in the structure of nucleoli and might modulate nucleolar functions
25305078 our findings suggest that novel mutations in FAM136A and DTNA genes are probably causal variants in FMD.
24014171 Ordered disorder of the astrocytic dystrophin-associated protein complex in the norm and pathology.
22507200 apoptosis-induction in HL-60 cells involves not only classical markers of apoptosis but also a network alpha-DB-associated proteins at the cell membrane, the cytoplasm and nucleus, affecting key cellular transport processes and cellular structure.
21115837 Data show that alpha-dystrobrevin-1 recruits alpha-catulin, which supersensitizes alpha(1D)-AR functional responses by recruiting effector molecules to the signalosome.
20379614 Clinical trial of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
20111909 Results suggest that alpha-dystrobrevin isoforms play a central role in cytoskeleton reorganization via their multiple interactions with actin and actin-associating proteins.
19961569 Fundamental functional differences between the alpha-dystrobrevins of mice and humans raises questions about the use of the mouse as a model animal for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

18299519 Dystrobrevin mRNA including exons 11A and 12 was increased in both skeletal and cardiac muscle of DM1 patients. The aberrantly spliced alpha-dystrobrevin isoform was localized to the sarcolemma.
15835271 Results confirm that dystrophin is required for anchorage of the syntrophin-dystrobrevin subcomplex and suggest that expression of the syntrophin-dystrobrevin complex may be independently regulated through neuromuscular transmission.
15834686 findings suggest that a-dystrobrevin specifically is associated with the tight junctions during their reorganization
12899872 patients with deficiency of beta2-syntrophin and alpha-dystrobrevin presented with severe congenital weakness and died in the first year, and patients with deficiency of alpha-DNT had congenital muscular dystrophy with complete external ophthalmoplegia.
12604589 Transgenic expression of either isoform of alpha-dystrobrevin prevented muscle fiber degeneration in knockout mice; however, only alphaDB1 corrected defects at neuromuscular and musculotendinous junctions.
12475945 alpha-dystrobrevin and its splice isoforms have a role in signal transduction in myeloid cells during induction of granulocytic differentiation and/or at the commitment stage of differentiation or phagocytic cells
12416719 During a cycle of regeneration in tibialis anterior muscle following myonecrosis, alpha-dystrobrevin reaches 50% of the protein level on day 28 by 6.6 days, regenerating more slowly than dystrophin.
