0 μm. 2); ‘Z’ is for ‘zwischen’, German for ‘between’. Between the Z lines there are two kinds of filament: thick filaments composed of the protein myosin and thin filaments composed primarily of the protein actin. Cardiac myosin and actin are different isoforms to those found in skeletal muscle. 6 μm long by 11 nm wide. Multiple filaments are arranged in parallel in the central part of the sarcomere, which is called the A band due to its anisotropic appearance under polarized light. Each filament consists of ϳ400 myosin molecules.
