In all eukaryotes, myosin plays a major role in the maintenance of cell shape and in cellular movement; in association with actin and other contractile proteins it is also a major structural component of the muscle sarcomere. Several isoforms of myosin alkali light chain have been identified, associated with different muscle types. We have recently… CONTINUE READING
