Muscle and cytoplasmic actins from several species have been compared by extensive fingerprint analysis and by partial amino acid sequence determination with the known amino acid sequence of rabbit muscle actin. Although complete sequences have not been established, the following characteristics are apparent. (a) Cytoplasmic actins are the products of two different genes. The difference seen in isoelectric focusing studies is probably determined only by the nature of the three amino-terminal… CONTINUE READING
