  • FunctionRegulatory light chain of myosin. Does not bind calcium.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in MYL3 are the cause of cardiomyopathy familial hypertrophic type 8 (CMH8) [MIM:608751]. 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. CMH8 inheritance can be autosomal dominant or recessive.
    Defects in MYL3 are the cause of cardiomyopathy familial hypertrophic with mid-left ventricular chamber type 1 (MVC1) [MIM:608751]. MVC1 is a very rare variant of familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, characterized by mid-left ventricular chamber thickening.

  • ab679 (1µg/ml) staining myosin light chain in human heart (left ventricle), using an automated system (DAKO Autostainer Plus). Using this protocol there is strong cytoplasmic staining of cardiomyocytes.
    Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3 in 1 AR buffer citrate pH6.1 in a DAKO PT link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 mins. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 min and detected with Dako envision flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with Diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that, for manual staining, optimization of primary antibody concentration and incubation time is recommended. Signal amplification may be required.
