Strong electrostatic interactions were observed between LDHA with F- or G-actin for both rabbit and human proteins.
Actin makes up 10-20% of the protein in living cells, and exists in two forms: a small monomeric form called G-actin and a long polymeric form known as F-actin.
Brownian dynamics (BD) simulations of the binding of the muscle form of fish fructose-l,6-bisphospahte aldolase (aldolase) to F-or G-actin confirm the strong interactions previously demonstrated in rabbit (3).
The resulting G-actin monomers are bound by Gc-globulin, which releases gelsolin from actin.
