Myosin is a highly conserved, ubiquitous protein found in all eukaryotic cells, where it provides the motor function for diverse movements such as cytokinesis, phagocytosis, and muscle contraction. All myosins contain an amino-terminal motor/head domain and a carboxy-terminal tail domain. The class II myosins, consist of the conventional two-headed myosins that form filaments and are composed of two myosin heavy chain (MYH) subunits and four myosin light chain subunits. There are 15 MYH genes identified as Class II myosins and these include six skeletal muscle MYHs (MYH1, MYH2, MYH3, MYH4, MYH8, MYH13), three cardiac MYHs (MYH6, MYH7, MYH7B) and two non-muscle MYHs (MYH9, MYH10), as well as a smooth muscle MYH (MYH11).

Western blot analysis MYH7B in mouse brain (lane 1 & 2) and mouse extraocular muscle (lane 3 & 4). The blot was probed with rabbit polyclonal anti-MYH7B/MHC14 (Hinge region) at 1:500 in absence (lanes 1 & 3) and presence of MYH7B blocking peptide (MX4555; lanes 2 & 4).

Immunocytochemical labeling of MYH7B in rat PC12 cells differentiated with NGF. The cells were probed with MYH7B (Hinge region) rabbit polyclonal antibody (MP4551) in the absence (left) or presence (right) of blocking peptide (MX4555). The antibody was detected using appropriate secondary antibody conjugated to DyLight® 594.

A synthetic peptide (coupled to KLH) corresponding to amino acid residues in the hinge region from mouse MYH7B/MHC14. This sequence is highly conserved in rat and human MYH7B, and has less than 50% identity with other MYH family members.

This antibody was affinity purified using MYH7B (Hinge region) peptide (without carrier). The antibody detects a 215 kDa* protein corresponding to the apparent molecular mass of MYH7B on SDS-PAGE immunoblots of mouse extraocular muscle and brain.

*All molecular weights (MW) are confirmed by comparison to Bio-Rad Rainbow Markers and to western blot mobilities of known proteins with similar MW.
