Characterisation of syncoilin

Abstract:

Syncoilin is a 64kDa intermediate filament protein (IF) first studied because it binds to the dystrophin associated protein complex (DAPC) through α-dystrobrevin. Syncoilin is highly expressed in skeletal and cardiac muscle, but the function of syncoilin in muscle remains largely unknown. A recently generated syncoilin null (sync-/-) mouse has almost no muscle phenotype.
