Two forms of mouse syntrophin, a 58 kd dystrophin-associated protein, differ in primary structure and tissue distribution.

Syntrophin, a 58 kd extrinsic membrane protein, is concentrated at postsynaptic sites at the neuromuscular junction and may be involved in clustering acetylcholine receptors. In muscle and nonmuscle tissues, syntrophin is associated with dystrophin, utrophin, and two homologs of the dystrophin carboxy-terminal region. We have isolated three cDNAs encoding Torpedo and mouse syntrophins. The Torpedo cDNA encodes a full-length protein, and on Northern blots recognizes a 3.5 kb mRNA. The two mouse syntrophin cDNAs are products of separate genes but encode proteins that share 50% identity. Syntrophin-1 mRNA (2.2 kb) is expressed at highest levels in skeletal muscle. Syntrophin-2 mRNAs (2.2, 5.0, and 10 kb) are expressed in all mouse tissues examined. These patterns of expression suggest that syntrophin-1 and syntrophin-2 may associate with different members of the dystrophin family.[1]
