AB - Myosin binding protein-C (MyBP-C), a majorthick filament associated sarcomeric protein, plays animportant functional and structural role in regulating sarcomereassembly and crossbridge formation. Missing oraberrant MyBP-C proteins (both cardiac and skeletal) havebeen shown to cause both cardiac and skeletal myopathies,thereby emphasising its importance for the normal functioningof the sarcomere. Mutations in cardiac MyBP-C area major cause of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM),while mutations in skeletal MyBP-C have been implicatedin a disease of skeletal muscle—distal arthrogryposis type1 (DA-1). Here we report the first detailed electronmicroscopy studies on human cardiac and skeletal tissuescarrying MyBP-C gene mutations, using samples obtainedfrom HCM and DA-1 patients. We have used establishedimage averaging methods to identify and study the axialdistribution of MyBP-C on the thick filament by averagingprofile plots of the A-band of the sarcomere from electronmicrographs of human cardiac and skeletal myopathyspecimens. Due to the difficulty of obtaining normal humantissue, we compared the distribution to the A-band structurein normal frog skeletal, rat cardiac muscle and incardiac muscle of MyBP-C-deficient mice. Very similaroverall profile averages were obtained from the C-zones incardiac HCM samples and skeletal DA-1 samples withMyBP-C gene mutations, suggesting that mutations inMyBP-C do not
