We have isolated cDNA clones encoding fast skeletal muscle myosin heavy chains of carp acclimated to 10, 20 and 30 degrees C for over 5 weeks. All clones covered at least the full length of L-meromyosin, the C-terminal part of the myosin molecule. Nucleotide sequence analysis on cDNA clones showed three types of 3' untranslated sequences, demonstrating that carp expresses at least three myosin heavy chain isoforms in fast skeletal muscle in an acclimation-temperature-dependent manner. cDNAs… CONTINUE READING
