The Use of Fluorescein-labeled Heavy Meromyosin for the Cytological Demonstration of Actin

Abstract

The interaction of actin and myosin is considered to be a necessary condition for the contraction of striated muscle. A cytological demonstration that myosin can bind to a discrete part of the sarcomere, which from other evidence contains actin, was made by Huxley (1, p. 261). He observed an increase in phase contrast density when myosinextracted fibrils… (More)
