Phosphorylation of the 20,000 dalton myosin light chain (LC) is a central regulatory mechanism of smooth muscle contraction. Our previous findings on airway smooth muscle have led us to hypothesize that length-dependent and length-independent modulation of myosin phosphorylation coexist in smooth muscle. In this study, we tested the general applicability of this hypothesis by investigating the length dependences of myosin phosphorylation and contractile force in bovine coronary arterial smooth… CONTINUE READING
