Immunofluorescence analysis of MYO7A was performed using 70% confluent log phase L6 cells. The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 10 minutes, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton™ X-100 for 10 minutes, and blocked with 1% BSA for 1 hour at room temperature. The cells were labeled with MYO7A Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (PA1936) at 2ug/ml in 0.1% BSA and incubated for 3 hours at room temperature and then labeled with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L) Superclonal™ Secondary Antibody, Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugate (A27034) at a dilution of 1:2000 for 45 minutes at room temperature (Panel a: green). Nuclei (Panel b: blue) were stained with SlowFade® Gold Antifade Mountant with DAPI (S36938). F-actin (Panel c: red) was stained with Alexa Fluor® 555 Rhodamine Phalloidin (Product # R415, 1:300). Panel d represents the merged image showing cytoskeletal localization. Panel e shows the control without primary antibody. The images were captured at 60X magnification.

PA1-936 detects myosin VIIa from mouse tissues as well as recombinant protein.
PA1-936 has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~220 kDa protein representing myosin VIIa from mouse testes preparations. PA1-936 detects recombinant mouse myosin VIIa overexpressed in Sf9 insect cell lysate.
PA1-936 immunizing peptide corresponds to amino acid residues 16-31 from mouse myosin VIIa. This sequence is completely conserved in mouse, porcine, and human myosin VIIa. PA1-936 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-045) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
Myosin VIIa is a member of the myosin superfamily of actin-based motor proteins. Defects in the myosin VIIa gene are responsible for hearing impairment in shaker-1 (sh1) mice and causes Usher syndrome IB in humans. Usher syndrome associates congenital deafness, vestibular dysfunction, and retinitis pigmentosa and is the most common form of combined deafness and blindness. Structural features of myosin VIIa protein include an ATP binding N-terminal motor domain, a central region which possess five light-chain binding (IQ) motifs, and a C-terminal domain with three myosin tail homology (MyTH4) and talin-like homology regions.
