SGCA

A gene on chromosome 17q21 that encodes a component of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex, which is thought to be restricted to striated muscle. It stabilises muscle cell membranes and links the actin cytoskeleton to the extracellular matrix.

Molecular pathology
SGCA mutations result in type 2D autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy.

He will highlight several strategies, including amplification of genes through one single set of PCR conditions and resequencing through automated primer design tools to seek primers for all salient portions of genes, such as DMD, CAV3, TRIM32, CAPN3, FKRP, FCMD, DYSF, SGCA, SGCB, SGCD, SGCG, and NEB genes.
