Dystroglycan contributes to the formation of basement membrane during embryonic development and enforces cell membrane integrity by bridging cytoskeleton and components of the extracellular matrix. In several forms of muscle disease, dystroglycan is reduced in abundance. Moreover, human viral and bacterial pathogens use dystroglycan as their cellular entry point.
