Dissecting the free energy of formation of the 1:1 actomyosin complex.


The behaviour of solutions of pure myosin, of pure F-actin and of the equimolar mixture of myosin and of F-actin is studied. It is found that the chemical potential of the two proteins, in separate solutions, increases monotonically with the increase of protein osmotic pressure. A method is presented to determine the chemical potential of the 1:1 actin… (More)
