Immune complexes were formed between dinitrophenylated human serum albumin (DNP-HSA) and polyclonal rabbit immunoglobulin G (IgG) anti-DNP antibodies at antibody excess. The antigen was labelled with isotope (125I-tyramine-cellobiose) or fluorochrome, (6-[fluorescein-5-(and-6)-carboxamido] hexanoic-acid, succinimidyl ester). The radiolabelled antigen, native or antibody...

Lys-553 of skeletal muscle myosin subfragment 1 (S1) was specifically labeled with the fluorescent probe FHS (6-[fluorescein-5(and 6)-carboxamido]hexanoic acid succinimidyl ester) and fluorescence quenching experiments were carried out to determine the accessibility of this probe at Lys-553 in both the...

2,4-Dinitrophenol (DNP) increases the affinity of myosin for actin and accelerates its Mg(2+)ATPase activity, suggesting that it acts on a region of the myosin head that transmits conformational changes to actin- and ATP-binding sites. The binding site/s for DNP are...
