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 ...
