Equilibrium Binding of Proteins to F-Actin
This chapter reviews some of the many available methods for measuring the binding of myosin and other proteins to actin. Binding to actin has special considerations because actin is a long lattice and the binding site of many of its binding partners consists of multiple actin protomers. The analysis of binding to a lattice cannot be done by standard methods such as a Scatchard plot. Rational methods of analysis are described.
