The antibody localizes the high molecular weight form of caldesmon in chicken or turkey gizzard and the low molecular weight form of caldesmon in chicken fibroblasts by immunoblotting. The antibody detects epitopes located on the non-calmodulin-binding part of caldesmon, more specifically, the central region of the molecule.

The avian erythroblastosis viral oncogene (v-erbB) encodes a receptor tyrosine kinase that possesses sarcomagenic and leukemogenic potential. We have expressed transforming and nontransforming mutants of v-erbB in fibroblasts to detect transformation-associated signal transduction events. Coimmunoprecipitation and affinity chromatography have been
