Powerpoint presentation examining the role of ARK-5 in normal cell function, cell-cell attachment, and filament organization. The author used indirect immunofluorescence to stain for ARK-5 in rat muscle cells and to check for location, co-localization, and to suggest function. It appeared that ARK-5 plays a similar role as UNC-82 in the organization of thick filaments and may localize with Endothelial tissue and Myosin bands in EHL muscle.
