The sarcomeric M-band is thought to provide a link between the thick and the elastic filament systems. So far, relatively little is known about its structural components and their three-dimensional organisation. Myomesin seems to be an essential component of the M-band, since it is expressed in all types of vertebrate striated muscle fibres investigated and can be found in its mature localisation pattern as soon as the first myofibrils are assembled. Previous work has shown that the N-terminal… CONTINUE READING
