Abstract

The probe binding cleft of myosin subfragment 1 (S1) contains the reactive thiol, SH1, and tryptophan 510 (Trp-510). Solvent accessibility to Trp-510, measured using the acrylamide quenching of its fluorescence, is highest in rigor and decreases during the ATPase cycle prior to force generation. These data suggest the probe binding cleft closes during ATP hydrolysis and opens during force generation. The closing of the probe binding cleft may be the origin of the shape change of S1 during ATP hydrolysis.
