Thus gene encodes the regulatory light chain associated with cardiac myosin beta (or slow) heavy chain. Ca+ triggers the phosphorylation of regulatory light chain that in turn triggers contraction. Mutations in this gene are associated with mid-left ventricular chamber type hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from

Results show that the binding force between selenium and cardiac myosin (CM), which consists of two heavy chains (MHC) and two pairs of light chains: MLC1 and MLC2, was 100 times stronger than that of daunorubicin (DNR) and CM.

Mlc2 phosphorylation regulates actin-myosin interactions in striated muscle contraction. It is important for feedback control of calcium-dependent thin-filament activation. Dephosphorylation can play a critical role in heart failure.
