Abstract

1. 1. Myosin light chains were isolated from the cardiac muscle of mackerel, Pneumatophorus japonicus japonicus, and their physicochemical and immunochemical properties were compared with those of the ordinary and dark muscles. 2. 2. Myosin light chains of the cardiac muscle were physicochemically similar to those of dark muscle, but clearly differed from those of ordinary muscle, especially in amino acid composition. 3. 3. In immunodiffusion and immunoelectrophoresis, the cardiac myosin light chains cross-reacted with the dark muscle myosin light chains, but not with the ordinary muscle counterparts.
