Overturf's test is the first to use newly emerging real-time PCR technology to assess how actively a rainbow trout's myosin gene is working.
A family of microRNAs encoded by myosin genes governs myosin expression and muscle performance.
Myosin is purified by a modification of the method that Ebashi developed for removing actin from smooth muscle actomyosin preparation.
Conservation within the myosin motor domain: implications for structure and function.
Because the fluorescence is detected at a different wavelength from the excitation light, only fluorescently marked molecules are monitored at the exclusion of other molecules, which means one can observe isolated myosin molecules by labeling them with a fluorescent probe.
myosin dynamics were visualized in living cells expressing GFP-tagged myosin regulatory light chain (MRLC: spaghetti squash in Drosophila) and mCherry-[alpha]-tubulin by TIRF microscopy.
Muscle fiber type analysis was performed using the myosin ATPase method optimized at pH 9.
MLCK modulates endothelial cell permeability mainly by phosphorylating the myosin light chain (MLC), which then activates the myosin heavy chain ATP enzyme.
However, when we consider shortening of multiple sarcomeres in a myofibril arranged in series, sliding filament theory fails to justify the movement of Z discs as each Z disc is being pulled in opposite direction by myosin heads of adjacent sarcomeres.
The putative heat stable proteins identified were myosin light chain (MLC), actin, tropomyosin (TPM), troponin T (TnT), myoglobin, and creatine kinase.
