  • The interaction of actin and myosin that occurs during muscle contraction is regulated by changes in intracellular Ca 2+ concentration (for reviews see Leavis & Gergely, 1984; Zot & Porter, 1987). In vertebrate striated muscles the dominant regulatory system involves binding of Ca 2+ fo troponin C (TnC) in the thin filaments, while other muscles (e.g., molluscan muscles) have a thick filament regulatory system in which myosin essential light chains (ELC) and regulatory light chains (RLC) are… CONTINUE READING
