Application Abreviews Notes
ELISA 1/5000.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB 1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 130 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 115 kDa).


  • Function
    Regulates myosin phosphatase activity.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in striated muscles, specifically in type 2a fibers (at protein level).
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 6 ANK repeats.
  • Developmental stage
    Induced by 2-fold during pregnancy, including in abdominus rectus muscle.
  • Domain
    Heterotetramerization is mediated by the interaction between a coiled-coil of PRKG1 and the leucine/isoleucine zipper of PPP1R12A/MBS, the myosin-binding subunit of the myosin phosphatase.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated by CIT (Rho-associated kinase) (By similarity). Phosphorylated cooperatively by ROCK1 and CDC42BP on Thr-696. Phosphorylated on upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
    In vitro, phosphorylation of Ser-695 by PKA and PKG appears to prevent phosphorylation of the inhibitory site Thr-696, probably mediated by PRKG1.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Along actomyosin filaments and stress fibers.
