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 of MYH13 in mouse extraocular muscle. The blot was probed on the left with anti-MYH13/Extraocular myosin (Hinge region) antibody (MP4571) and on the right with anti-MYH13/Extraocular myosin (C-terminal region) antibody (MP4561).

A synthetic peptide (coupled to KLH) corresponding to amino acid residues in the C-terminal region from mouse MYH13/extraocular myosin. This sequence has 100% identity with rat and human MYH13, and has no homology to other myosin family members.

This antibody was affinity purified using MYH13 (C-terminal region) peptide (without carrier). The antibody detects a 215 kDa* protein corresponding to the apparent molecular mass of MYH13 on SDS-PAGE immunoblots of mouse extraocular muscle, and does not detect MYHs in mouse diaphragm, gastrocnemius, or 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.
