Sarcomeric or striated muscle myosins are the molecular motors whose fine tuning is best known. Sarcomeric myosin isoforms convert chemical into mechanical energy at very different rates without losing efficiency. Availability of the amino acid sequences offers for the first time the chance to understand the molecular basis of the versatility of these molecular motors.
