Myosin, along with actin, forms the fundamental contractile unit of muscle, the myofibril. It has a molecular mass of 500 kD and is comprised of two identical heavy chains (200 kD each) and four light chains (15-20 kD). Monoclonal antibody MY-32 to fast twitch skeletal myosin may be used for detecting crossstriated muscle differentiation in tumors. This antibody does not stain human or animal cardiac or smooth-muscle myosin. Staining of fast twitch (type II) isomyosin molecules has been demonstrated on human skeletal muscle. The antibody stains human, rabbit, rat, mouse, bovine, chicken and guinea pig skeletal myosin.
