    PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
    STRUCTURE
    motifs/domains
  • a globular head (associating to the light chain and containing actin and ATP binding sites)
  • a neck containing IQ calmodulin or calmodulin-like light chain binding domain (the converter) connected to the base of a long alpha helical tail,(the liver)
  • a light meromyosin domain of the myosin rod (LMM)important for thick filament assembly or for accessory protein binding
  • secondary structure two heavy chains subunits (mhc), two alkali light chain subunits (mlc) and two regulatory light chain subunits (mlc2)
