Hydrodynamic calculations lead to the conclusion that chymotryptic (or ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) myosin S1 in solution (hydrated), at 1-5 degrees C, can be modeled as a prolate ellipsoid, with an axial ratio lying between p = 1.0 and 2.5 (major axis between 100.5 A, for p = 1.0, and 162.5 A, for p = 2.5). The degree of hydration is considerable (1.24… CONTINUE READING
