Abstract

The invention pertains to the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex of mammalian skeletal muscle and a method of isolating said complex. The components of the complex and methods of separating and isolating said components also pertain to the invention. In addition, the invention further relates to a method of diagnosing muscular dystrophy by detecting and quantifying the loss of a non-dystrophin component of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex with said loss being indicative of muscular dystrophy.
