Various biological activities have been attributed to actin-capping proteins based on their in vitro effects on actin filaments. However, there is little direct evidence for their in vivo activities.… Expand
Purification and initial characterization of a protein from skeletal muscle that caps the barbed ends of actin filaments.
We describe herein the purification of a protein from skeletal muscle that binds to ("caps") the morphologically defined barbed end of actin filaments. This actin-capping protein appeared to be a… Expand
Cap Z(36/32) is a contaminant and the major inhibitor of actin network formation in conventional actin preparations.
Previous studies have demonstrated that conventional actin preparations contain a potent factor which reduces the low shear viscosity of actin filaments. In this paper we demonstrate that Cap… Expand
