Abstract

Intermediate sized filaments reconstituted in vitro from purified desmin, epidermal keratin and the Mr68,000 protein of neurofilaments were examined after high resolution metal shadowing. The filaments demonstrate a marked longitudinal periodicity of about 21 nm. This is the first procedure that allows detection of a periodic substructure in these filaments using the electron microscope. © 1982.
