The human SGCD1 protein show a 95% amino acid identity with the hamster sequence, a weak homology with the N-terminus of beta-sarcoglycan and C. elegans clone F07H5.2. A weak homology was noted between the Cysteine-containing region of these sarcoglycans and the a so called "EGF-like cysteine containing repeat" of proteins like the LDL-receptor, laminin-A1 and fibrillin (McNally, consensus xCxCPxG[x]5-15C).
Fruitfly (D. melanogaster) and C. elegans both contain one gene which shows a strong similarity equally related to SGCG, SGCD and SGCZ.
|human SGCD||23 / 51 %||55 / 70 %|
|mouse SGCZ||21 / 39 %||56 / 74 %||57 / 75 %||100|
Legend: similarities of the human and mouse proteins with other sarcoglycan proteins (% identity / % similarity. For SGCD isoform-1 was taken.
