Staggered movement of an actin filament sliding on myosin molecules in the presence of ATP



Staggered movement of an actin filament sliding on myosin molecules in the presence of ATP



Biophysical Chemistry 70(3): 241-245, March 9



An actin filament sliding on myosin molecules in the presence of an extremely low concentration of ATP exhibited a staggered movement. Longitudinally sliding movement of the filament was frequently interrupted by its non-sliding, fluctuating movements both in the longitudinal and transversal directions. Intermittent sliding movements of an actin filament indicate establishment of a coordination of ATP-mediated active sites distributed along the filament.
