Myosins A & B in the Organization of Myofilaments

  • Henry F. Epstein
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 182)


I will discuss the question of two myosin isoforms in the same muscle from a genetical, as well as biochemical, viewpoint. For an overview, I will begin by reviewing the sliding-filament model for the molecular mechanims of muscle contraction by Huxley (489).
