Abstract

We describe a genetic transformation system which should prove useful for investigating tropomyosin assembly and function. Muscle abnormalities associated with a defective tropomyosin allele were corrected by integrating the wild-type gene into germ line chromosomes. The transformation protocol permits application of directed mutagenesis techniques in investigations of contractile regulatory mechanisms.
