Gene: DMD (dystrophin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: DMD
Name: dystrophin
RGD ID: 736976
Description: Exhibits cytoskeletal protein binding activity and dystroglycan binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cardiac muscle contraction; positive regulation of neuron projection development; and regulation of heart rate. Localizes to several cellular components, including costamere; filopodium membrane; and sarcolemma. Predicted to colocalize with actin cytoskeleton and lateral plasma membrane. Implicated in cognitive disorder; dilated cardiomyopathy (multiple); intellectual disability; and muscular dystrophy (multiple). Biomarker of Duchenne muscular dystrophy and dilated cardiomyopathy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
