Description

The Myosin family includes a number of ATP-driven motor proteins involved in muscle contration and actin-dependent cellular motility. Although they were originally thought to be limited to muscle tissues, new genes sharing basic myosin superfamily properties have since been identifed nearly all eukaryotic cell types. The myosin proteins are spearated into 18 different classes, which have been found to be highly conserved across species. Myosin antibodies are commonly used for cell motility, ATP hydrolysis and muscle studies, as well as loading controls.
