Example sentences for: actomyosin

How can you use “actomyosin” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • To determine a character of muscle fibers (type II or type I) exhibiting changes in p27 expression, adjacent cryostat sections were stained for actomyosin adenosinetriphosphatase (ATPase).

  • The procedure for the histochemical demonstration of actomyosin ATPase was employed as described by Goth and Samara [ 24 ] . Briefly, fixed sections were washed in rinse solution [18 mM calcium chloride in 100 mM tris (hydroxymethyl) aminomethane (Tris), pH 7.8] for 1 minute, preincubated either in 50 mM potassium acetate in 18 mM calcium chloride at pH 4.35 (for acid-stable myosin ATPase, type I slow twitch muscle fibers), or in 18 mM calcium chloride in 100 mM 2-amino-2-methyl-1-propanol at pH 10.

  • Caldesmon is likely to play a modulatory role on the production of smooth muscle force via a tethering of actin to myosin [ 11 ] and/or of its effects on the actomyosin ATPase [ 12 13 14 ] . Similarly, TM does not seem to function as a major regulatory protein, but modulatory effects due to its ability to maintain the actin filamentous structure [ 15 ] , to inhibit the Ca 2+-ATPase activity [ 16 ] , alter the cytoskeletal dynamics [ 17 ] and improve actin filament flexibility during the contraction/relaxation cycle [ 18 19 ] have been well documented.

  • Two methods were used: (1) The histochemical method of Ogilvie and Feeback [ 18 ] , based on staining for myofibrillar actomyosin ATPase, and (2) immunohistochemistry based on the reaction of specific antibodies for mysosin heavy chain (MHC) isoforms [ 34 35 ] . In the histochemical staining procedure, sections were pre-incubated in (0.

  • In panel C, type I (dark stain), IIa (light stain), and IIb-IId/x (intermediate stain) fibers can be identified based on the myofibrillar actomyosin ATPase histochemical staining procedure [ 18 ] . Immunohistochemistry was used to positively identify subpopulations of fibers expressing only the 2B MHC.
