Myosin binding protein C (MyBP-C) is one of a group of myosin binding proteins that are present in the myofibrils of all striated muscle. The protein is found at 43-nm repeats along 7 to 9 transverse lines in a portion of the A band where crossbridges are found (C zone). MyBP-C contains myosin and titin binding sites at the C terminus of the molecule in all 3 of the isoforms (slow skeletal, fast skeletal, and cardiac). The cardiac isoform also includes a series of residues that contain 3… CONTINUE READING
