Cardiac myofibrillogenesis was examined in cultured chick cardiac cells by immunofluorescence using antibodies against titin, actin, tropomyosin, and myosin. Primitive cardiomyocytes initially contained stress fiber-like structures (SFLS) that stained positively for alpha actin and/or muscle tropomyosin. In some cases the staining for muscle tropomyosin and… (More)
