8-11) Dystrophin is a subsarcolemmal protein of the caveolar domain with a double adhesion property, one between the membrane elements and the contractile filaments and the other between the cytoskeletal proteins and the extracellular matrix via the laminin-binding system.
Adhesion phase occurring at long term contact involves various biological molecules like extracellular matrix proteins, cell membrane proteins and cytoskeletal proteins which interact together to induce signal transduction, promoting the action of transcription factors and consequently regulating gene expression (2).
Because PC12 cells are particularly rich in cytoskeletal proteins (16) and because SLE patients may present serum antibodies against these proteins (17), it is likely that the positivity of the two SLE serum samples was caused by the recognition by antibodies of non-AChR proteins, probably cytoskeletal proteins.
