Electron microscopy of the actin-myosin head complex in the presence of ATP.

Abstract

The structure of the actin-myosin head complex during the ATPase cycle has been studied by electron microscopy of negatively stained acto-heavy-meromyosin. In the absence of ATP, heavy meromyosin molecules generally showed a regular, angled appearance, with both heads attached to the actin filament. In the presence of ATP, attached molecules showed a less… (More)
