An atomic model of the junction between the two heads and tail of a myosin molecule has been created by attaching a scallop regulatory domain to the end of each of the two alpha-helical strands of a model of the scallop alpha-helical coiled coil. The C-terminal alpha-helix of the heavy chain of each regulatory domain was superposed over the corresponding sequence in the coiled coil. In the structure created, the two heads lie alongside one another with their bases in contact but remarkably… CONTINUE READING
