The effects of tropomyosin on muscle mechanics and kinetics were examined in skeletal myofibrils using a novel method to remove tropomyosin (Tm) and troponin (Tn) and then replace these proteins with altered versions. Extraction employed a low ionic strength rigor solution, followed by sequential...
The metabolic sensor adenosine-monophosphate-activated kinase (AMPK) detects the cellular energy status and adjusts metabolic activity according to the cytosolic AMP to ATP ratio. Na + absorption by epithelial Na + channels (ENaC) is a highly energy-consuming process that is inhibited by AMPK. We...
