Abstract

As skeletal muscle fibres mostly express a single myosin isoform, they are a potential source of pure myosin isoforms. A technique is described that allows extraction and identification of pure myosin isoforms from single fibres, and testing of such myosins in an in vitro motility assay (IVMA). The results show that the extraction procedure does not alter myosin function and support the view that single fibres are reliable sources of purified myosin isoforms for IVMA.
