Contractility and Extractability of Heart Actomyosin After Death
The contractility and extractability of actomyosin and proteins prepared from dogs' heart immediately, and one hour after death were compared. The yield of total and soluble proteins and of actomyosin was found to be identical. In addition, there was no difference between the after-loaded contractions of actomyosin bands of fresh preparation and those obtained one hour after death.
