Myosin-6 recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)


Anti-MYH6 antibody produced in rabbit, a Prestige Antibody, is developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project ( Each antibody is tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues. These images can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. The antibodies are also tested using immunofluorescence and western blotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

MYH6 (myosin, heavy chain 6) gene encodes the α heavy chain subunit of the cardiac muscle myosin, which is a hexamer made up of two heavy chain subunits, two light chain subunits, and two regulatory subunits. It is involved in the contraction of muscles. Defects in this gene cause atrial septal defect 3 (ASD3) characterized by incomplete closure of the wall between the atria resulting in blood flow from the left to the right atria. Mutations in this gene also cause familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy that is characterized by ventricular hypertrophy, dyspnea, syncope, collapse, palpitations, and chest pain.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.
