Myosin regulatory light chains, including MRCL3 (also known as MRLC3 or MLCB), MRLC2 (also known as MLC-B) and MYL9 (also known as LC20, MLC2, MRLC1 or MYRL2), regulate contraction in smooth muscle and non-muscle cells via phosphorylation by myosin light chain kinase (MLCK). Phosphorylation of myosin regulatory light chains, catalyzed by MLCK in the presence of calcium and calmodulin, increases the Actin-activated myosin ATPase activity, thereby regulating the contractile activity. Myosin light chain is also located in striated skeletal muscle, where its function remains undefined.
Synthetic peptide, corresponding to the 10-40 of Human MYL9.
Human, Mouse, Rat
Product: 1 mg/ml in Phosphate buffered saline (PBS) with 0.05% sodium azide, approx. pH 7.2.Specificity: MYL9/MYL12A (P13) polyclonal antibody detects endogenous levels of MYL9 and MYL12A protein.
The antibody was affinity-purified from rabbit antiserum by affinity-chromatography using epitope-specific immunogen and the purity is > 95% (by SDS-PAGE).
Store at 4°C short term. Aliquot and store at -20°C long term. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
