ENZYME entry: EC 5.6.1.8

Accepted Name
Myosin ATPase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + H(2)O + myosin bound to actin filament at position(n) <=> ADP + phosphate + myosin bound to actin filament at position(n+1)
Comment(s)
  • Proteins of the contractile apparatus of muscle and nonmuscle cells; myosin molecule consists of two heavy chains (about 200 kDa) and two pairs of light chains (15-27 kDa).
  • The head region of the heavy chain contains actin- and ATP-binding sites.
  • ATP hydrolysis provides energy for actomyosin contraction.
  • Formerly EC 3.6.1.32 and EC 3.6.4.9.
