Myosin light chains have been isolated from slow-twitch soleus muscles of rabbit and cat. Two chemically related light chains of molecular weight about 22 000 have been identified from their thiol sequences in each species, and these have been further characterized by amino acid analysis and peptide mapping studies. These light chains are related to the alkali light chains of rabbit fast-twitch muscles and to the larger cardiac light chain from bovine heart muscle. The presence of two… CONTINUE READING
