Non-muscle myosin II is an actin-based motor protein essential to cell motility, division, migration, adhesion and polarity. This myosin forms a hexameric complex comprised of two heavy chains (NMHC-II), two essential light chains, and two regulatory light chains (RLC). In vertebrates, there are three NMHC-II isoforms (NMHC-IIA, NMHC-IIB, and NMHC-IIC), which exhibit distinct patterns of expression in cells and tissues. Regulation of NMHC-II activity occurs through RLC and HC phosphorylation. RLCs are phosphorylated at Thr-18 and Ser-19, which activates myosin II motor activity and promotes filament stability. By contrast, PKC phosphorylation of Ser-1/Ser-2 and Thr-9 in RLC may decrease activated myosin II interaction with actin. Several kinases phosphorylation NMHC-II isoforms directly. TRPM7 phosphorylates Thr-1800, Ser-1803, and Ser-1808, which reduces NMHC-IIA incorporation into the actin cytoskeleton. PKC phosphorylates NMHC-IIA on Ser-1916 and NMHC-IIB on multiple tailpiece serines leading to inhibition of filament assembly. Casein kinase II phosphorylates NMHC-IIA on Ser-1943 and increases disassembly of NMHC-IIA filaments.

Western blot image of human A431 cells stimulated with calyculin A (100 nM, 30 min). The blots were untreated (lanes 1, 3 & 5) or treated with lambda phosphatase (lanes 2, 4 & 6), and probed with rabbit polyclonals Myosin IIA Heavy Chain (a.a. 1936-1950) (lanes 1 & 2), Myosin IIA Heavy Chain (Ser-1803), phospho-specific (lanes 3 & 4) or Myosin IIA Heavy Chain (Ser-1916) phospho-specific (lanes 5 & 6).



Phospho-Myosin IIA Heavy Chain (Ser-1916) synthetic peptide (coupled to KLH) corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Ser-1916 in human myosin IIA heavy chain. This peptide sequence is highly conserved in rat and mouse myosin IIA heavy chain.

This antibody was cross-adsorbed to unphosphorylated Myosin IIA Heavy Chain (Ser-1916) peptide before affinity purification using phospho-Myosin IIA Heavy Chain (Ser-1916) peptide (without carrier). The antibody detects a 200 kDa* protein corresponding to Myosin IIA Heavy Chain on SDS-PAGE immunoblots of human A431 cells treated with Calyculin A. This reactivity is removed after treatment with lambda phosphatase.

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