A Long Helix from the Central Region of Smooth Muscle Caldesmon
(East Carolina University, 1991-07-25)
The central region of smooth muscle caldesmon is predicted to form α-helices on the basis of its primary structure. We have isolated a fragment (CT54) that contains this region. The hydrodynamic properties and the electron ...
The Interaction of Caldesmon with the COOH Terminus of Actin
(East Carolina University, 1991-10-25)
Caldesmon interacts with the NH2-terminal region of actin. It is now shown in airfuge centrifugation experiments that modification of the penultimate cysteine residue of actin significantly weakens its binding to caldesmon ...
Association of pneumothorax and hypotension with intraventricular haemorrhage
(East Carolina University, 1991-01)
To test the hypothesis that acute hyotension resulting from pneumothorax would be associated with severe brain injury (grade 3 or 4 intraventricular haemorrhage), 67 very low birthweight (VLBW) infants of 32 weeks' gestation ...
