Cardiac Myosin binding protein-C (cMyBP-C), also known as MYBPC3, is a protein which in humans is encoded by the MYBPC3 gene.[1][2][3]



MYBPC3 encodes the cardiac isoform of myosin-binding protein C. Myosin-binding protein C is a myosin-associated protein found in the cross-bridge-bearing zone (C region) of A bands in striated muscle. It is found in regularly spaced intervals and is hypothesised to act as like a "barrel hoop" and hold the thick filament together. MYBPC3, the cardiac isoform, is expressed exclussively in heart muscle. Regulatory phosphorylation of the cardiac isoform in vivo by cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) upon adrenergic stimulation may be linked to modulation of cardiac contraction.[1]

Clinical significance

Mutations in MYBPC3 are one cause of familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[4]

A deletion of 25 bp in the gene encoding the MYBPC3 protein is associated with heritable cardiomyopathies and an increased risk of heart failure in Indian populations.[5]
