The subunit organization of the myosin filament of chicken striated muscle has been observed directly in cross-sections in electron microscopy. The organization consists of three centrally located and nine peripherally located subunits in a close-packed arrangement. This arrangement is that predicted by a previously derived model for the detailed molecular organization of the myosin filament (Pepe, 1966 a, 1967 a, 1971). Each subunit measures approximately 30 A in diameter and the center-to… CONTINUE READING
