2ec6 Summary


Placopecten Striated Muscle Myosin II

The structure was published by Yang, Y., Gourinath, S., Kovacs, M., et al., Szent-Gyorgyi, A.G., Brown, J.H., and Cohen, C., in 2007 in a paper entitled "Rigor-like structures from muscle myosins reveal key mechanical elements in the transduction pathways of this allosteric motor." (abstract).

This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 3.25 Å and deposited in 2007.

The experimental data on which the structure is based was also deposited.

This PDB entry contains a complex of 3 biomacromolecules, namely Myosin heavy chain, Myosin regulatory light chain, and Myosin essential light chain.

It also contains one or more heterogenic compounds (e.g., ligands, co-factors, ions, modified amino acids, etc.); see here for a complete list.

The molecule most likely forms heterotrimers.
