Comparative sequence analysis of four myosin heavy chain isoforms expressed in porcine skeletal muscles: sequencing and characterization of the porcine myosin heavy chain slow isoform



Comparative sequence analysis of four myosin heavy chain isoforms expressed in porcine skeletal muscles: sequencing and characterization of the porcine myosin heavy chain slow isoform



Animal Science Journal 73(4): 257-262



A nucleotide sequence including the full coding region for the myosin heavy chain (MyHC) slow isoform was determined from the longissimus skeletal muscle. The deduced amino acid sequence was 1935 residues, which was the same length as the human and rat MyHC-slow isoforms. The porcine MyHC-slow isoform showed 97.6 and 97.4% amino acid identities to the human and rat isoforms on their entire regions, respectively.
