motifs/domains
  • globular head associating to the light chain (amino acid residues &
  • 8764;1779)
  • actin and ATP binding sites
  • a neck containing IQ calmodulin or calmodulin-like light binding domain (the converter) connected to the base of a long alpha helical tail, rodlike tail sequence highly repetitive, showing cycles of a 28-residue repeat pattern composed of 4 heptapeptides, characteristic for alpha-helical coiled coils
  • a myosin head-like domain
  • globular motor domain (AAs &
  • 8764;1779) attached by short neck (&
    8764;779840) and hinge (&
    8764;840) regions to a long coiled-coil rod domain (&
    8764;8401,940)
  • majority of the rod region comprises the myosin tail domain (AAs &
  • 8764;1,0701,940)

    basic FUNCTION
  • motor contractile protein moving towards the "plus" end of actin track
  • involved in muscle contraction
  • plays a crucial role in important processes in the early developing heart and, hence, is a candidate causative gene for atrial septal defects and cardiomyopathy
  • protein that assembles as homo- and hetero-dimers to form the thick filament in the sarcomere

  • hexameric protein that consists of 2 heavy chain subunits (MHC), two alkali light chain subunits (MLC) and two regulatory light chain subunits (MLC-2)
