Invertebrate muscles: muscle specific genes and proteins.

  title={Invertebrate muscles: muscle specific genes and proteins.},
  author={Scott L. Hooper and Jeffrey B. Thuma},
  journal={Physiological reviews},
  volume={85 3},
This is the first of a projected series of canonic reviews covering all invertebrate muscle literature prior to 2005 and covers muscle genes and proteins except those involved in excitation-contraction coupling (e.g., the ryanodine receptor) and those forming ligand- and voltage-dependent channels. Two themes are of primary importance. The first is the evolutionary antiquity of muscle proteins. Actin, myosin, and tropomyosin (at least, the presence of other muscle proteins in these organisms… CONTINUE READING
