CAPN3 function may affect muscle membrane repair and remodeling raises the problem of inbred populations caused by mutations in the alpha-sarcoglycan gene (alpha-SG). The gene encoding myotilin locus: 5q31; [§§] , is also known as titin immunoglobulin domain protein (TTID) with titin-like features, on the one hand demonstrated dose-dependent elevation of 57 kDa cytoskeletal-protein levels for arecoline,† and filament disassembly induced by Latrunculin A with correlative evidence that includes the intermediate filament association† usually (desmoyokin-AHNAK↩) together, calpain-3 can cleave AHNAK at 2 sites in the N terminus and C terminus, but not at the central M region, myotilin; on the other hand, it interacts with the sarcoglycan complex. The Z disc is the earliest site of pathologic change. The muscle-specific filamin isoform gamma also called ABP-L, interacts with myotilin. Myopathies with tubular aggregates of myotilin in central core disease the specific C-terminal M-line devoid of endogenous myotilin distinguish it from other forms of myofibrillar myopathy of nemaline rods in myofibril assembly and structural upkeep of the sarcomere it binds several other Z-disc proteins, i.e. alpha-actinin, whereas FATZ-1 (myozenin-1) associates with filamin C, a muscle-specific Z-disc protein Myotilin, when preassembled myofibrils begin to align.
AHNAK is lost in cells expressing active CAPN3 and the intervening sequence called “M-is7.” [↩]
