We have shown previously that dystrophin is a component of postsynaptic membranes in Torpedo electric organ and is localized at mammalian neuromuscular synapses. In skeletal muscle, dystrophin is also detectable at the non-synaptic membrane of the myofiber, whereas in the electric organ, dystrophin is strictly localized to the postsynaptic membrane, and is not detectable in non-synaptic membranes. Multiple isoforms of dystrophin are present in skeletal muscle, and different isoforms could potentially be targetted to synaptic and non-synaptic membranes. We sought to determine whether the electric organ contains a single, or multiple isoforms of dystrophin, and we show here that the electric organ contains both a and b isoforms of dystrophin. Because dystrophin is found only at the postsynaptic membrane of the electric organ, we conclude that the two isoforms coexist in the postsynaptic membrane.
