In brief: Like this:

In skeletal and cardiac muscles, dystrophin is part of a group of proteins (a protein complex) that work together to strengthen muscle fibers and protect them from injury as muscles contract and relax.
The dystrophin complex acts as an anchor, connecting each muscle cell's structural framework together, also with the extracellular matrix!
