Component of the sarcoglycan complex, a subcomplex of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex which forms a link between the F-actin cytoskeleton and the extracellular matrix. Defects in SGCG are the cause of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2C (LGMD2C). LGMD2C is characterized by progressive muscle wasting from early childhood. Belongs to the sarcoglycan beta/delta/gamma/zeta family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Dystrophin complex; Membrane protein, integral
