Myosin has been identified in a variety of non-muscle cells, and is believed to play a role in maintenance of cell shape, locomotion, cytokinesis, exocytosis and other cellular functions. In this paper we describe the purification of myosin from a pancreatic acinar-cell carcinoma of the rat which forms solid tumours, but retains many differentiated… CONTINUE READING
