|Other Names||Unconventional myosin-Ic, Myosin I beta, MMI-beta, MMIb, MYO1C|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6372c was selected from the Center region of human MYO1C. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Myosins are actin-based motor molecules with ATPase activity. Unconventional myosins serve in intracellular movements. Their highly divergent tails are presumed to bind to membranous compartments, which would be moved relative to actin filaments. Involved in glucose transporter recycling in response to insulin by regulating movement of intracellular GLUT4-containing vesicles to the plasma membrane. Component of the hair cell's (the sensory cells of the inner ear) adaptation-motor complex. Acts as a mediator of adaptation of mechanoelectrical transduction in stereocilia of vestibular hair cells. Binds phosphoinositides and links the actin cytoskeleton to cellular membranes.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Colocalizes with RNA polymerase II. Absent from nucleoli and does not colocalize with RNA polymerase I. Translocates to nuclear speckles upon exposure to inhibitors of RNA polymerase II transcription Isoform 3: Nucleus, nucleoplasm. Nucleus, nucleolus. Nucleus, nuclear pore complex. Note=Colocalizes with RNA polymerase II in the nucleus. Colocalizes with RNA polymerase I in nucleoli (By similarity). In the nucleolus, is localized predominantly in dense fibrillar component (DFC) and in granular component (GC). Accumulates strongly in DFC and GC during activation of transcription. Colocalizes with transcription sites Colocalizes in the granular cortex at the periphery of the nucleolus with RPS6. Colocalizes in nucleoplasm with RPS6 and actin that are in contact with RNP particles. Colocalizes with RPS6 at the nuclear pore level.|

MYO1C is a member of the unconventional myosin protein family, which are actin-based molecular motors. The protein is found in the cytoplasm, and one isoform with a unique N-terminus is also found in the nucleus. The nuclear isoform associates with RNA polymerase I and II and functions in transcription initiation. The mouse ortholog of this protein also functions in intracellular vesicle transport to the plasma membrane.
