Caldesmon from rabbit liver: molecular weight and length by analytical ultracentrifugation.

Although smooth muscle caldesmon migrates as a 140- to 150-kDa protein during sodium dodecyl sulfate-gel electrophoresis, its molecular mass is around 93 kDa as determined by sedimentation equilibrium (P. Graceffa, C-L. A. Wang, and W. F. Stafford, 1988, J. Biol. Chem. 263, 14,196-14,202). Nonmuscle caldesmon migrates during electrophoresis with a molecular… CONTINUE READING
