Data Examples

Western Blot Detection  of Human MYH6 by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human MYH6 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human heart (atrium) tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 10 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human MYH6 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8979) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for MYH6 at approximately 230 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Immunocytochemistry MYH6  in BG01V Human Embryonic Stem Cells. View Larger

MYH6 in BG01V Human Embryonic Stem Cells. MYH6 was detected in immersion fixed BG01V human embryonic stem cells differentiated into cardiomyocytes using Mouse Anti-Human MYH6 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8979) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Immunohistochemistry MYH6  in Human Heart. View Larger

MYH6 in Human Heart. MYH6 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human heart using Mouse Anti-Human MYH6 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8979) at 5 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm of cardiomyocytes. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Background: MYH6

The MYH6 gene encodes the alpha chain of cardiac myosin, a muscle motor protein with two regions that bind actin at aa 657-679 and 759-773. Defects in this gene cause atrial septal defect 3, hypertrophic cardiac myopathy and sick sinus syndrome. MYH6 participates in embryonic and adult heart development and muscle contraction.  In adult heart, the beta chain isoform predominates in the ventricular tissue, while both isoforms are found in variable proportions in atrial tissue.  Force development is much faster in atrial tissue and ATP consumption is much higher.
