Control of filament length by the regulatory light chains in skeletal and cardiac myosins.


The possible role of the regulatory light chains (LC2) in in vitro assembly of rabbit skeletal and dog cardiac myosins was examined by formation of minifilaments and synthetic thick filaments. After LC2 was removed, the resulting myosin preparations exhibited little aggregation in 0.5 M KCl and 0.05 M potassium phosphate (pH 6.5). Minifilaments migrated as… (More)
