Purification of Tetrahymena actin reveals some unusual properties.

Actin from Tetrahymena pyriformis has been purified by monitoring the presence of the actin gene product with an antiserum against a synthetic N-terminal peptide deduced from the nucleotide sequence of the Tetrahymena actin gene that we cloned previously. This highly purified Tetrahymena actin shares many essential properties with ubiquitous actin… CONTINUE READING
