Myosin Light Chains:
The smaller subunits of Myosins that bind near the head groups of Myosin heavy chains. The myosin light chains have a molecular weight of about 20 KDa and there are usually one essential and one regulatory pair of light chains associated with each heavy chain. Many myosin light chains that bind calcium are considered "calmodulin-like" proteins.
