Gautel M, Goulding D. A molecular map of titin/connectin elasticity reveals two different mechanisms acting in series. FEBS Lett. 1996;385:11-4 pubmed
..Above 2.6 micron, length changes are increasingly due to the PEVK-rich regions. We therefore propose that rubber-like properties of the PEVK-rich regions are mainly contributing to skeletal titin elasticity. ..

..This suggests that transcomplementation of MyBP-C isoforms is possible in skeletal but not cardiac muscle. ..
