Sequential disassembly of myofibrils induced by myristate acetate in cultured myotubes


The phorbol ester TPA induces the sequential disassembly of myofibrils. First the alpha-actin thin filaments are disrupted and then, hours later, the myosin heavy chain (MHC) thick filaments. TPA does not induce the disassembly of the beta- and gamma-actin thin filaments of stress fibers in presumptive myoblasts or fibroblasts, nor does it block the… (More)
