Tropomyosin Period 3 Is Essential for Enhancement of Isometric Tension in Thin Filament-Reconstituted Bovine Myocardium
Summary of the temperature effect on isometric tension (a) and stiffness (b). The mean and SEM are shown. The number of experiments is nfTm (), (), (). Under the experimental conditions used here (standard activation solution and the constant sarcomere length), the larger temperature sensitivity corresponds to an increased hydrophobic interaction between actin and myosin molecules .
