Quantification of laminin-α5 and α-dystroglycan in triceps brachii of dyW/dyW mice expressing dyW/c-FLag or dyW/AgPerl

StrainLaminin-α5α-Dystroglycan
WT100 ± 16100 ± 11
dyW/dyW138 ± 2028 ± 3
dyW/c-FLag263 ± 6460 ± 6
dyW/AgPerl266 ± 3961 ± 6
dyW/c-mag264 ± 4069 ± 12
  • Both transgenes increase the concentration of laminin-α5 and α-dystroglycan in dyW/dyW mice. Similar values were observed in dyW/c-mag mice. Values are relative to WT mice and represent the mean ± the SEM. n ≥ 3.
