SGCB

A gene on chromosome 4q12 that encodes beta-sarcoglycan, a transmembrane component of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex, which help stabilise muscle fibre membranes and link the muscle cytoskeleton to the extracellular.

Molecular pathology
SGCB  is mutated in in patients with limb-muscle muscular dystrophy type 2E.

We measured proximal single-digit CAL outcomes with the three nonscreening subtests of the SGCB (Fuchs et al.
For CAL outcomes, the pretest covariates corresponded to the outcomes: single-digit SGCB, double-digit SGCB, and WRAT (for the standardized outcome).
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.
