Myosin binding protein-C (MyBP-C) is a thick filament protein that is thought to have structural and regulatory effects, and mutations in the gene encoding MyBP-C are among the most commonly identified with familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. I examined the effect of MyBP-C ablation (MyBP-C-/- ) on mechanical properties in mouse skinned cardiac myocytes. Peak normalized power output at maximal Ca2+ activation was significantly elevated in myocytes from MyBP-C-/- myocardium, while isometric force and rate of force development were unchanged. At submaximal Ca 2+ activation, however, the rate of force development was significantly elevated and peak normalized power output was increased to an even greater extent. From these data it is concluded that MyBP-C regulates myocardial contractility by limiting crossbridge kinetics.
