In vitro stability and protein composition of thick filaments from insect flight muscles

Abstract

Thick and thin filaments of synchronous and asynchronous insect flight muscles were separated by density gradient centrifugation. A good release of myofilaments from myofibrils was obtained by sonication of myofibrils in relaxing solution with pH 6.1 (locust), pH 6.4 (honeybee) and pH 6.6 (fleshfly), respectively. Thick filaments but not thin filaments were… (More)
