Dystrophin and Utrophin: The Missing Links!

There is considerable sequence homology between dystrophin and utrophin, both at the protein and DNA level, and consequently it was assumed that their domain structures and functions would be similar. As more of the detailed biochemical and cell biological properties of these two proteins become known, so it becomes clear that there are subtle if not significant differences between them. We review recent findings and present new hypotheses into the structural and functional properties of the actin-binding domain, central coiled-coil region and regulatory/membrane protein-binding regions of dystrophin and utrophin.
