  1. The A4.1025 epitope is located near the ATP binding site of the MyHC head, as reported in mammals by Dan Goor et al 1990.  We have found this epitope to be highly conserved in sarcomeric MyHCs from all genes tested in a wide variety of vertebrates.  The epitope is exposed in native myosin, and after 4% PFA and a variety alcoholic fixations.  It is the most reliable general sarcomeric MyHC antibody I know.  It does not detect zebrafish smooth muscle, for example in the early gut, or non-muscle myosins.
