25279699 A glucuronic acid beta1,4-xylose disaccharide synthesized by B4GAT1 acts as an acceptor primer that can be elongated by LARGE with the ligand-binding heteropolysaccharide.
25279697 B4GAT1 is involved in the initiation of the LARGE-dependent repeating disaccharide that is necessary for extracellular matrix protein binding to O-mannosylated alpha-dystroglycan.
24709677 A homozygous LARGE mutation at Cys443 is identified in patients with dystroglycanopathies, whereas the mutation p.Glu509Lys in this study may confer a milder phenotype.
24629698 results suggest absent alpha-DG expression & LARGE deregulation closely associated w/ nodal metastasis tongue cancer. Aberrant alpha-DG expression & glycosylation attributed to abnormal epigenetic modification of LARGE; hypermethylation of its promoter.
24132234 results reveal that the LARGE-glycan of dystroglycan serves as a tunable extracellular matrix protein scaffold, the extension of which is required for normal skeletal muscle function
23705025 This study suggests LARGE as the first known modifier of plasma antithrombin.
22223806 LARGE could act as a bifunctional glycosyltransferase, with xylosyltransferase and glucuronyltransferase activities, which produced repeating units of [-3-xylose-alpha1,3-glucuronic acid-beta1-]; allowed alpha-DG to bind laminin-G domain-containing ECM ligands
21987822 the ligand-binding activity of alpha-dystroglycan is conferred primarily by LARGE modification at Thr-317 and -319, within the highly conserved first 18 amino acids of the mucin-like domain
21727005 This study demonistreated that Intragenic rearrangements in LARGE gene in muscle-eye-brain disease.
21248746 This report extends our knowledge of the clinical phenotype associated with LARGE, and is the second family in which disease results from a large-scale gene rearrangement.
