Sorry, no etymologies found.
When the two plectin CH domains can separate, the affinity for F-actin is approximately three times greater than when the two CH domains are cross-linked (the disulfide cross-link is indicated by the space filling atoms at the CH1-CH2 interface) in a closed conformation Affiliations
Additionally, we found a number of proteins known to interact with both actin and microtubules, such as MACF1 and plectin, pointing to a strong link between these two types of filaments in egg extract system.
- actinin's ABD to F-actin is likely to explain observations made about plectin
