Mouse monoclonal [MYSN02] to Fast Myosin Skeletal Heavy chain, prediluted
ab75370 may be used for detecting cross striated muscle differentiation in tumors. It will not stain human or animal cardiac muscle, smooth muscle myosin, or cells grown by tissue culture (non muscle myosin).
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
IHC-P: Ready to use.
Not yet tested in other applications.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Contains 1 IQ domain. Contains 1 myosin head-like domain.
The rodlike tail sequence is highly repetitive, showing cycles of a 28-residue repeat pattern composed of 4 heptapeptides, characteristic for alpha-helical coiled coils. Each myosin heavy chain can be split into 1 light meromyosin (LMM) and 1 heavy meromyosin (HMM). It can later be split further into 2 globular subfragments (S1) and 1 rod-shaped subfragment (S2).
Cytoplasm > myofibril. Thick filaments of the myofibrils.
