Abstract

Cytoplasmic myosin has been isolated and characterized from numerous vertebrate nonmuscle cells, including platelets, fibroblasts, intestinal brush border and macrophages (for reviews see refs. 1 and 2). Similar to smooth muscle myosin, vertebrate cytoplasmic (also referred to as nonmuscle) myosin is composed of a pair of 200 kDa heavy chains and two pairs of light chains (20 kDa and 17 kDa).
