Associations of ACTG2 with chemical compounds

  • This difference correlates with the deletion in smooth muscle gamma-actin of one out of four NH2-terminal acidic residues typical of skeletal and smooth muscle alpha-actin isoforms, suggesting that this additional acidic residue in alpha-actins is involved in the weak binding of cations which is essential for polymerization [3].
