DAG1 [ENSP00000312435]
 
dystroglycan 1 (dystrophin-associated glycoprotein 1); Forms part of the dystrophin-associated protein complex (DAPC) which may link the cytoskeleton to the extracellular matrix. Alpha-dystroglycan functions as a laminin receptor. Binds to several types of arenaviruses. Is a target for the entry of Mycobacterium leprae into peripheral nerve Schwann cells
SGCA [ENSP00000262018]
 
sarcoglycan, alpha (50kDa dystrophin-associated glycoprotein); Component of the sarcoglycan complex, a subcomplex of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex which forms a link between the F-actin cytoskeleton and the extracellular matrix
