Some properties of the actomyosin-like protein of the uterus.
Comparatively little work has been done on the protein extractable from uterus muscle under conditions similar to those used for extracting actomyosin from skeletalmuscle. Csapo (1949, 1950a, b) hasExpand

STUDIES ON THE ANOMALOUS VISCOSITY AND FLOW-BIREFRINGENCE OF PROTEIN SOLUTIONS
1. An investigation of the physicochemical properties of myosin has been carried out. Prepared under standard conditions, the ratio of flow-birefringence to protein concentration is uniform. TheExpand
