|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Other Accession||EAW71866, 119592272|
|Calculated MW||128072 Da|
|Application Notes||MYBPC2 antibody can be used for detection of MYBPC2 by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 5 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||MYBPC2 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||MYBPC2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Thick filament-associated protein located in the crossbridge region of vertebrate striated muscle a bands. In vitro it binds MHC, F-actin and native thin filaments, and modifies the activity of actin-activated myosin ATPase. It may modulate muscle contraction or may play a more structural role.|

MYBPC2 Antibody: Myosin binding protein C (MYBPC) is a component of the thick filament of striated muscle, with the fast-type isoform designated MYBPC2. Both the fast-type and slow-type MYBPC protein contains seven immunoglobulin C2 motifs and three fibronectin type-III repeats. MYBPC2 is typically required for strong contractions and functions under anaerobic conditions. It is more similar to the cardiac isoform (MYBPC3) than to the slow-type isoform (MYBPC1) in terms of pCa50-indexed force development, length-independent cooperativity and length dependent activation. It has been suggested that in cardiac and fast muscle MYBPC2 contributes to an internal load, possibly by binding to actin via its N-terminal region.
