The pemmican we used consisted of powdered dried beef (containing the important protein, myosin) and 50 per cent.
Other forms of protein are globulin and myosin, which form the actual muscle-substance.
Another similar experiment made with antipeptone, formed from the myosin of muscle-tissue, gave like results.
Into this special class fall myosin (of the muscles), fibrinogen (of the blood) and vitellin (of egg yolk).
myosin my·o·sin (mī'ə-sĭn)
The commonest protein in muscle cells, a globulin responsible for the elastic and contractile properties of muscle and combining with actin to form actomyosin.
A protein found in muscle tissue as a thick filament made up of an aggregate of similar proteins. Myosin and the protein actin form the contractile units (sarcomeres) of skeletal muscle. In the sarcomere, actin and myosin filaments slide past each other to cause the shortening of a muscle fiber.
