Latest Sliding filament model Stories
Tokyo, Dec 17, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Beginning with their discovery of spontaneous oscillatory contraction (SPOC) of muscle, Prof.
Muscle contraction and many other movement processes are controlled by the interplay between myosin and actin filaments.
During the final stage of cell division, a short-lived contractile ring constricts the cellular membrane and eventually separates the dividing cell in two.
Researchers from the Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Gothenburg have managed for the first time to obtain detailed information about the role of the protein metastasin in the spread of tumor cells.
New insight into the physiology of cardiac muscle may lead to the development of therapeutic strategies that exploit an inherent protective state of the heart.
New research sheds light on the interaction between the semi-flexible protein tropomyosin and actin thin filaments.
Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine have discovered that a protein called leiomodin (Lmod) promotes the assembly of an important heart muscle protein called actin. Whatâ€™s more, Lmod directs the assembly of actin to form the pumping unit of the heart. The findings appear in this weekâ€™s issue of Science.
