actinin

actinin a minor protein constituent of muscle, found to be concentrated in both the Z line and the I band. Two components of actinin have been identified: a-actinin, F-actin cross-linking protein, a dimer of ∼200 kDa with an action similar to that of actinogelin.; and b-actinin, a dimer of ∼70 kDa, similar in action to gelsolin.
