Unformatted text preview: 113. Award: 1.00 point Problems? Adjust credit for all students. Match each protein with the appropriate filament. Elastic Active Myosin Myosin Myosin Thick Filaments Myosin heads Actin Tropomyosin Troponin Myosin heads Thin Filaments Actin Troponin Active sites Neither Thick Nor Thin Filaments Dystrophin Active sites Tropomyosin Dystrophin Elastic filament Elastic filament Explanation: Thick filaments are about 15 nm in diameter. Each is made of 200­500 hundred molecules of a protein called myosin. A myosin molecule is shaped like a golf club, with two chains intertwined to form a shaftlike tail and a double globular head projecting from it at an angle. The heads on one half of the thick filament angle to the left, and the heads on the other half angle to the right; in the middle is a bare zone with no heads. Thin filaments, 7 nm in diameter, are composed primarily of two intertwined strands of a protein called fibrous (F) actin. Each F actin is like a bead necklace—a string of subunits called globular (G) actin. Each G actin has an active site that can bind to the head of a myosin molecule. A thin filament also has 40 to 60 molecules of yet another protein called tropomyosin. References Classification eBook & Resources Section: 11.02 ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
