Motor proteins such as myosin and kinesin are responsible for actively directed movement in vivo. The physicochemical mechanism underlying their function is still obscure. A novel and unifying model concerning the motors driving mechanism is suggested here. This model resides within the framework of the well-studied "swinging lever-arm" hypothesis, stating(More)
Energy liberation rate (E) during steady muscle shortening is a monotonic increasing or biphasic function of the shortening velocity (V). The study examines three plausible hypotheses for explaining the biphasic E-V relationship (EVR): 1) the cross-bridge (XB) turnover rate from non-force-generating (weak) to force-generating (strong) conformation decreases(More)
