Alternative splicing of the zebrafish Myosin Phosphatase Targeting Subunit, MYPT1, produces a novel isoform (TV202). TV202 and the truncated TV202Δ ere shown to form an active complex with Protein Phosphatase 1 β (PP1β) via stress fiber assay. TV202 was also shown to be localized in the cytoplasm, enriched in a paranuclear manner. TV202Δ was found the be localized inside the nucleus. It was also found that TV202 was zygotically, but not maternally, expressed during early zebrafish development via RT-PCR.
