Calcium regulated thin filaments from molluscan catch muscles contain a caldesmon-like regulatory protein

Abstract

The thin filaments of the anterior byssus retractor muscle of the edible musselMytilus and the transluscent and opaque adductors of the oysterCrassostrea have been isolated and their properties investigated. We find that the thin filaments from all three muscles can activate skeletal muscle myosin ATPase in the presence of calcium but that the activity is… (More)
