A method is described for the purification of troponin from beef skeletal muscle. The resultant preparation differs from the troponin of rabbit skeletal muscle in that it contains at least two forms of the tropomyosin-binding component, Troponin-T: these are designated as the 37 000 and 40 000 dalton forms of Troponin-T on the basis of sodium dodecyl(More)
Rabbit muscle myogen has been subjected to moving-boundary electrophoresis and velocity sedimentation in 0.0187 M-potassium phosphate buffer, pH7.7, I = 0.05. The ascending and descending and descending electrophoretic patterns are sufficiently non-enantiographic to suggest the existence of rapid, reversible interactions in the myogen solutions. However, no(More)
Ox muscle troponin was shown by equilibrium- and velocity-sedimentation studies to undergo concentration-dependent dissociation into its constituent subunits as well as self-association in imidazole buffers, pH 6.9. The extent of troponin association was found to be strongly dependent on ionic strength and also to exhibit a dependence on pH and temperature;(More)
Polyclonal antibody directed against the subfragment-2 region of myosin was purified by affinity chromatography. Skinned muscle fibers that had been preincubated with antibody were able to sustain only 7% of the active isometric force generated by control fibers. The effect of antibody on force production could not be accounted for by inhibition of ATP(More)
In a muscle-based version of in vitro motility assays, the unloaded shortening velocity of rabbit skeletal myofibrils has been determined in the presence and absence of affinity-column-purified polyclonal antibodies directed against the subfragment-2 region of myosin. Contraction was initiated by photohydrolysis of caged ATP and the time dependence of(More)
