Class V unconventional myosins are two-headed, nonfilamentous, actin-based mechanoenzymes that appear to be expressed ubiquitously. Mice possess at least two myosin V heavy chain genes (dilute and myr6) whose approximately 190 kDa protein products are referred to as myosin Va and Vb, respectively. Using antibodies that are specific for the Va isoform and immunofluorescence microscopy, we show here that myosin Va localizes to the microtubule organizing center (MTOC) in interphase cells, and to… CONTINUE READING
