Cap Z(36/32), a barbed end actin-capping protein, is a component of the Z-line of skeletal muscle
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 aExpand

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 CapExpand
