Abstract

Intermediate filaments (IFs), composed primarily of the protein desmin, link together the myofibrils in skeletal muscle. We have shown that the protein synemin is a novel IF protein and that it interacts with desmin. Together, these proteins are important in maintaining the structural integrity of muscle cells.
