Myosin is made up of two identical heavy chains (200 kD each) and four light chains (15-20 kD). Myosin has a molecular mass of 500 kD. ?Myosin along with actin forms the contractile unit of muscle, the myofibril. ?Monoclonal antibody MY-32 to fast twitch skeletal myosin may be used for detecting cross-striated 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.
