GO term:dystroglycan binding
Synonym: alpha-dystroglycan binding
Synonym: beta-dystroglycan binding
GO id:GO:0002162
Definition:Interacting selectively and non-covalently with dystroglycan. Dystroglycan is glycoprotein found in non-muscle tissues as well as in muscle tissues, often in association with dystrophin. The native dystroglycan cleaved into two non-covalently associated subunits, alpha (N-terminal) and beta (C-terminal).
