Smooth Muscle Myosin Information for Pathologists
Smooth Muscle Myosin (heavy chain, also known as SMMHC) is encoded by the MYH11 gene. Fusion between core binding factor beta (CBF-beta) with SMMHC (CBFbeta-SMMHC; Inv(16)(p13q22)) is present in nearly all acute myeloid leukemia M4 eosinophilia subtype (AML M4Eo). Smooth Muscle Myosin is useful for differentiating between benign and malignant lesions.
Common Uses By Pathologists:
SMM is present in acute myeloid leukemia of M4 eosinophilia subtype. SMM IHC staining can be used to evaluate restenosis in peripheral artery disease. Its expression is decreased in diverticular disease.
