Abstract

Orientation dependence and rotational motion of maleimide spin labels attached to the fast reacting thiol sites of myosin were studied in glycerinated cardiac and skeletal muscle fibres in rigor and in relaxing medium. The probe order in skeletal muscle was shown to be about one order of magnitude higher than that in cardiac muscle. In skeletal muscle in rigor the orientational order is static on the time scale of the saturation transfer electron paramagnetic resonance measurement (ST EPR, rotational correlation time of the label is greater than 1 ms), but in cardiac muscle fibres, a disorder was observed which was at least partly dynamical, the rotational correlation time being about 100 microseconds. In relaxing solution the degree of order of probe molecules in both types of muscle was strongly reduced at and above the resting length. The disorder was at least partly dynamical on the ST EPR time scale, the apparent rotational correlation times being 200 microseconds for skeletal muscle and 60 microseconds for cardiac muscle, respectively. According to the results of ST EPR the rotational behavior of cross-bridges was identical in cardiac and skeletal muscle in relaxing medium.
