  • FunctionMuscle contraction.
  • 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.

Anti-Myosin antibody [MAC 147] images

  • ab51098 staining Myosin in Drosophila Melanogaster body wall muscle cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence. Cells were PFA-fixed prior to blocking in 1% BSA for 10 minutes at 25°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/1000 and incubated with the sample for 16 hours at 4°C. The secondary antibody was an undiluted Alexa Fluor® 647-conjugated Donkey anti-Rat polyclonal.
