Myosin loop 2 is involved in the formation of a trimeric complex of twitchin, actin, and myosin.

Molluscan smooth muscles exhibit a low energy cost contraction called catch. Catch is regulated by twitchin phosphorylation and dephosphorylation. Recently, we found that the D2 fragment of twitchin containing the D2 site (Ser-4316) and flanking immunoglobulin motifs (TWD2-S) formed a heterotrimeric complex with myosin and with actin in the region that… CONTINUE READING
