Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Supernatant IH
Myosin is a 480kD protein known to interact with actin in muscle and in nonmuscle cells. It contains two identical heavy chains (200kD each) and four light chains (1526kD). Myosin molecules consist of two major regions: tails (rod) and heads; they aggregate into filaments through the tail region and interact with actin and with ATP through the head region. Multiple forms of myosin heavy chains exist for each muscle type. Skeletal, cardiac, smooth and non-muscle isomyosin forms exist in different types of skeletal muscle, depending on the physiological function of the muscle. These are designated at type I (slow-twitch) and type II (fast-twitch).
