The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/50 - 1/100.
1/100 - 1/500. Detects a band of approximately 55 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 65 kDa).
FunctionImplicated in the level of global muscle contraction and cardiac function. Phosphorylates a specific serine in the N-terminus of a myosin light chain.
Tissue specificityHeart and skeletal muscles. Increased expression in the apical tissue compared to the interventricular septal tissue.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in MYLK2 are a cause of familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (CMH) [MIM:192600]; also designated FHC or HCM. Familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a hereditary heart disorder characterized by ventricular hypertrophy, which is usually asymmetric and often involves the interventricular septum. The symptoms include dyspnea, syncope, collapse, palpitations, and chest pain. They can be readily provoked by exercise. The disorder has inter- and intrafamilial variability ranging from benign to malignant forms with high risk of cardiac failure and sudden cardiac death.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Colocalizes with phosphorylated myosin light chain (RLCP) at filaments of the myofibrils.
