Molecular packing of myosin II coiled-coil rods into myosin filaments and the role of skip residues in the heptad sequence have been investigated. Sequence comparison of rods from skeletal, smooth and non-muscle myosin II shows that different myosin II subtypes have significantly different charge distributions. Analysis of the ionic interactions between adjacent rods with changing molecular overlap relates the different patterns of charge to the different structures of skeletal and smooth… CONTINUE READING
