  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in MYL2 are the cause of cardiomyopathy familial hypertrophic type 10 (CMH10) [MIM:608758]. 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.
    Defects in MYL2 are the cause of cardiomyopathy familial hypertrophic with mid-left ventricular chamber type 2 (MVC2) [MIM:608758]. MVC2 is a very rare variant of familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, characterized by mid-left ventricular chamber thickening.

Anti-Myosin Light Chain 2 antibody images

  • Myosin Light Chain 2 was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg Mouse Heart tissue, 5µg of Rabbit polyclonal to Myosin Light Chain 2 and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).

    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, Mouse Heart tissue lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.

    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70°C; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab79935.

    Secondary: Mouse monoclonal [SB62a] Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG light chain (HRP) (ab99697).

  • IHC image of ab79935 staining in Mouse Heart formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab79935, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
  • ab79935 staining Myosin Light Chain 2 in Mouse embyronic (e18.5) cardiomyocytes by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.5% Triton X-100 and blocked with 1% Serum for 1 hour 30 minutes at 20°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/140 in 1% goat serum + 10% BSA + 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS) for 16 hours at 4°C. An AlexaFluor® 594-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.
