Two loci have been characterized in the mouse Mus musculus, which are homologous to the mRNAs encoding myosin light chains MLC1F and MLC3F, two proteins with a common -COOH terminal sequence. One of these loci is an intronless pseudogene, absent from the mouse species Mus spretus; alterations in its nucleotide sequence preclude it from generating a(More)
Mammalian cardiac muscle contains two myosin alkali light chains which are the major isoforms present in either atrial (MLC1A) or ventricular (MLC1V) muscle, and which are different from the fast skeletal muscle isoforms (MLC1F and MLC3F). The atrial isoform is also expressed in fetal skeletal and fetal ventricular muscle, where this isoform is also(More)
A single locus in the mouse, rat and chicken encodes both alkali myosin light chains, MLC1F and MLC3F. This gene has two distinct promoters and gives rise to two different primary transcripts, which are processed by alternative and different modes of splicing to form MLC1F and MLC3F mRNAs. The MLC1F/MLC3F gene is very similar between mouse, rat and chicken,(More)
