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.
24565866 Results show that HRD1 and RFP2 contributes are required for the disposal of V247M alpha-sarcoglycan mutant.
23703062 2 members of a Spanish family with muscular dystrophy had a new missense mutation c409G>A, p.Glu137Lys in exon 5 of the alpha-sarcoglycan gene, as well as a paternal c739G>A, p.Val24Met mutation inexon 6.
22303798 DNA analysis demonstrated homozygosity for a point mutation (574C>T) in the alpha-sarcoglycan gene.
21884196 E-cadherin,alpha-dystroglycan and beta-dystroglycan levels were decreased in the oesophageal primary tumour samples, despite the presence of normal levels of dystroglycan mRNA.
21856579 This study reported recessive founder LGMD2D for the Magdalen Islands, an archipelago settled in the XIXth century, largely by Acadian immigrants.
21656825 Reduced expression of laminin-binding glycans on alpha-DG may contribute to formation of highly infiltrative behavior of prostate carcinoma cells.
21361872 Peptide sequences in alpha-DG are substrates for protein-O-mannose N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase 1 (POMGnT1), demonstrated when a library of mannopeptides is generated which corresponds to sequences of the mucin-like stem region of alpha-DG.
21031578 Long-term, sustainable gene expression of alpha-sarcoglycan was observed following gene transfer mediated by AAV.
20019182 Absence of members of the dystrophin-associated glycoprotein complex constitutes a permissive environment for spontaneous development of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma associated with mutation of p53 and mutation or altered splicing of Mdm2.
18996010 The limb-girdle muscular dystrophy patients with alpha-sarcoglycan deficient LGMD2D do not enable an accurate prediction of the genotype.
18078839 identified a negative regulatory element in the alpha-SG distal promoter including two conserved E-boxes (E1 and E2), which interact with MyoD
16883602 Biglycan is a ligand for two members of the sarcoglycan complex and regulates their expression at discrete developmental ages.
15298081 Two adult brothers with a mild form of LGMD2D, compound heterozygous for two missense mutations of the SGCA gene (Arg77Cys, Val247Met), presented with respiratory insufficiency while they were still ambulatory.
