Actin-activated myosin II motor function powers muscle contraction and nonmuscle cell motility. The actin-myosin-derived contractility has evolved with a great diversity in different muscle and cell types. Actin filament-based regulation controls striated muscle contraction and plays a role in modulating smooth muscle contractility and nonmuscle cell motility. This review focuses on the isoform diversity and functional adaptations of troponin in striated muscle and calponin in smooth muscle and… CONTINUE READING
