Synemin is a large intermediate filament (IF) protein that has been identified in all types of muscle cells in association with desmin- and/or vimentin-containing IFs. Our previous studies (Bellin, R. M., Sernett, S. W., Becker, B., Ip, W., Huiatt, T. W., and Robson, R. M. (1999) J. Biol. Chem. 274, 29493-29499) demonstrated that synemin forms heteropolymeric IFs with major IF proteins and contains a binding site for the myofibrillar Z-line protein alpha-actinin.
