High impact information on MYBPC1

  • Immunological evidence also suggests that an embryonic isoform of MyBP-C precedes the expression of slow MyBP-C in developing skeletal muscle [1].
  • This MyBP-C isoform had a migration rate similar to the slow MyBP-C isoform in limb muscle fibers [2].
  • Compared to the benign phenotypes the expression of MYBPC-1 was particularly increased in SCC cells, confirmed by Northern hybridization [3].
