For facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.Alexa Fluor 488 has the same range to that of fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC), yet the Anti-MYLK3 has a very high photo stability. As a result of this photo stability, it has turned into an antibody for fluorescent microscopy and FACS FLOW cytometry. It is distinguished in the FL1 of a FACS-Calibur or FACScan. Also Alexa Fluor 488 is pH stable.If you buy Antibodies supplied by Bioss Primary Conjugated Antibodies. ALEXA FLUOR they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
Background of the antigen
The Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinases (CaM kinases) are a structurally related subfamily of serine/threonine kinases that includes CaMKI, CaMKII, CaMKIV and Myosin light chain kinases (MYLKs, also designated MLCKs). The MYLK kinases phosphorylate Myosin regulatory light chains to catalyze Myosin interaction with Actin filaments, resulting in contractile activity. MYLK3 (Myosin light chain kinase 3) is a 795 amino acid cardiac-specific protein that contains one protein kinase domain and belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Like other MYLK kinases, MYLK3 is thought to play a role in smooth muscle contraction, specifically using magnesium as a cofactor to catalyze the ATP-dependent phosphorylation of Myosin light chain proteins. Additionally, MYLK3 may regulate sarcomere assembly in heart tissue, possibly mediating proper heart function.
