26-29) Reduced plakoglobin in desmosomes has been reported and proposed as a possible clinical test and is particularly appealing as it may highlight a defect in otherwise apparently normal tissue.
Identification of a deletion in plakoglobin in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy with palmoplantar keratoderma and woolly hair (Naxos disease).
The plakoglobin, desmoplakin and desmocollin-2 are family members of desmosomal proteins that function as cell-cell adhesion junction, and are expressed in skin, heart and hair.
Experiments have shown that incubation of cardiac fibroblasts in presence or absence of exogenous TGF[beta]3 revealed increased expression of plakoglobin gene (45) and overexpression of TGF[beta]3, caused by UTR mutations which might affect cell-to-cell junction stability leading to a final outcome as observed in ARVD/C which is caused by mutations in desmosomal genes.
They went on to demonstrate that overexpression of DSP led to increased plakoglobin ([gamma]-catenin).
In desmosomes, two classes of desmosomal cadherins, the desmogleins and desmocollins, bind to the [Beta]-catenin-related protein called plakoglobin.
52) A major role of catenins (including [alpha]-catenin, [beta]-catenin, plakoglobin, and p120 catenin) is to anchor the E-cadherin complex to the actin cytoskeleton.
They are calcium-dependent adhesion molecules that belong to the cadherin superfamily and link to CK filaments via desmoplakins and plakoglobin.
