Myopalladin is a protein that in humans is encoded by the MYPN gene. Myopalladin is a muscle protein responsible for tethering proteins at the Z-disc and for communicating between the sarcomere and the nucleus in cardiac and skeletal muscle[5][6][7]


Myopalladin is a 145.2 kDa protein composed of 1320 amino acids.[8][9] Myopalladin has five Ig-like repeats within the protein, and a proline-rich domain. Myopalladin binds the Src homology domain of nebulette and nebulin and tethers it to alpha-actinin via its C-terminal domain binding to the EF hand domains of alpha-actinin. The N-terminal region of myopalladin binds to the nuclear protein CARP, known to regulate gene expression in muscle.[5] It also has been shown to bind ANKRD23.[10]


Myopalladin has dual subcellular localization, residing in both the nucleus and sarcomere/I-bands in muscle. Accordingly, myopalladin has functions in both sarcomere assembly and in control of gene expression.[5] Specifics of these functions were gleaned from studies involving MYPN mutants associated with various cardiomyopathies. The Q529X myopalladin mutant demonstrated incompetence in recruiting key binding partners such as desmin, alpha-actinin and CARP to the Z-disc during myofibrilogenesis. In contrast, the Y20C mutant resulted in decreased expression of binding partners.[11]

Clinical significance[edit]

Mutations in MYPN have been linked to dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and restrictive cardiomyopathy.[11][12]
