Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/10000 - 1/50000. Detects a band of approximately 220 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 223 kDa).
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for IHC-P or IP.
  • Target

    • FunctionMuscle contraction. Required for cytoskeleton organization.
    • Involvement in diseaseDefects in MYH2 are the cause of inclusion body myopathy type 3 (IBM3) [MIM:605637]. Hereditary inclusion body myopathies constitute a group of neuromuscular disorders characterized by slowly progressive distal and proximal weakness and a typical muscle pathology including rimmed vacuoles and filamentous inclusions. IBM3 is a variant of hereditary inclusion body myopathies and is characterized by autosomal dominant myopathy with joint contracture, ophthalmoplegia and rimmed vacuoles. Morphological analysis of muscle biopsies from patients indicate that the type 2A fibers frequently were abnormal, whereas other fiber types appeared normal.
    • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 IQ domain.
      Contains 1 myosin head-like domain.
    • DomainThe rodlike tail sequence is highly repetitive, showing cycles of a 28-residue repeat pattern composed of 4 heptapeptides, characteristic for alpha-helical coiled coils.
      Each myosin heavy chain can be split into 1 light meromyosin (LMM) and 1 heavy meromyosin (HMM). It can later be split further into 2 globular subfragments (S1) and 1 rod-shaped subfragment (S2).
    • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > myofibril. Thick filaments of the myofibrils.
