Enhancing the staggered fluctuations of an actin filament sliding on Chara myosin

Enhancing the staggered fluctuations of an actin filament sliding on Chara myosin

Biophysical Chemistry 109(3): 345-350

We examined both longitudinal and transversal fluctuations of displacements of an actin filament sliding upon Chara myosin molecules. Although the magnitude of transversal fluctuations remained rather independent of ATP concentration, the longitudinal ones were found to increase their magnitude as the concentration increased. In addition, the longitudinal fluctuations gradually increased as the sliding velocity of the filament increased.
