We have found evidence for two beta-like myosin heavy chains in humans, one cardiac and one skeletal. The cDNA sequences of the cardiac beta myosin heavy chain cDNA clone pHMC3 and the skeletal beta-like myosin heavy chain cDNA clone pSMHCZ, were compared to each other. It was found that the 3′ untranslated regions as well as 482 nucleotides specifying the carboxyl coding region, were 100% homologous. Further examination revealed that the skeletal clone pSMHCZ diverges from the human cardiac… CONTINUE READING
