Myocilin in Human Skeletal Muscle. Myocilin was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of Human Skeletal Muscle using Mouse Anti-Human Myocilin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3446) at 5 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Goat IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC004). Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using VisUCyte Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # VCTS021). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to sarcoplasm and sarcolemma in skeletal muscle cells.

Background: Myocilin

Myocilin (also known as TIGR) is a variably glycosylated, 65 kDa, secreted polypeptide that belongs to the family of olfactomedin-related proteins. Human Myocilin is synthesized as a 490 aa precursor that contains an 18 aa signal sequence, an 84 aa N-terminus, a 53 aa alpha ‑helical leucine zipper and a 335 aa C-terminus that contains a 260 aa OLF-domain. An alternate start site generates a signal-sequenceless 504 aa mature protein. Myocilin forms nondisulfide-linked dimers and multimers. The human 32 kDa OLF-domain shares 87% aa sequence identity with the OLF-domain in bovine, rat, and mouse.
