Extensibility of isoforms of cardiac titin: variation in contour length of molecular subsegments provides a basis for cellular passive stiffness diversity.

Abstract

Titin is a giant polypeptide that spans between the Z- and M-lines of the cardiac muscle sarcomere and that develops force when extended. This force arises from titin's extensible I-band region, which consists mainly of three segment types: serially linked immunoglobulin-like domains (Ig segments), interrupted by the PEVK segment, and the N2B unique… (More)
