The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent dilution.
Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml.
FunctionMyosin regulatory subunit that plays an important role in regulation of both smooth muscle and nonmuscle cell contractile activity via its phosphorylation. Phosphorylation triggers actin polymerization in vascular smooth muscle. Implicated in cytokinesis, receptor capping, and cell locomotion.
Tissue specificityUbiquitously expressed in various hematopoietic cells.
Sequence similaritiesContains 3 EF-hand domains.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylation increases the actin-activated myosin ATPase activity and thereby regulates the contractile activity. It is required to generate the driving force in the migration of the cells but not necessary for localization of myosin-2 at the leading edge. Phosphorylation is reduced following epigallocatechin-3-O-gallate treatment.
