          HELP CONSTRUCT A MUSCLE / NON-MUSCLE
            CONTRACTILITY & MOTILITY SITE!!!

                        -----------

Bionet folks:

  A new WWW and Gopher site is being constructed at the University of 
Vermont Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics.  This site
will house information related to the contractility and motility of muscle
and non-muscle cells.

  WE NEED YOUR HELP!

  Links to existing information are *nice*, but what the web REALLY needs 
is information on-line.  If you study some aspect of cell motility or muscle
physiology, please consider volunteering to author a tutorial on some topic
in this exciting field!  Recommendations for links to existing sites are 
also appreciated.

  Pertinent information may include (but certainly not be limited to):

  * Exercise physiology (related to muscle)
  * General physiology and anatomy of muscle
  * Cellular physiology and anatomy of muscle
  * Excitation-contraction coupling
  * Comparative physiology of muscle
  * Muscle types (smooth, skeletal, cardiac)
  * Movement in non-muscle cells
  * Myosin
    - skeletal
    - smooth
    - cardiac V1 & V3
    - non-muscle
    - light chains
  * Actin & actin binding proteins
  * Microtubules and microtubule-based motors
  * Energetics
  * Methodology
    - molecular biology
    - cell lines
    - new techniques
    - classic techniques

  If you know of an existing site housing these data, please pass it along.
If you would like to contribute an article on one of these topics, this 
would be especially appreciated.  GRAPHICS are greatly appreciated, and 
will be displayed "in line" in the WWW pages.

  WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU? - Fame, fortune...  that is, a by line, and a link 
to your WWW home page (if you have one).  Other bio-netters will appreciate
your contributions!

  I look forward to your replies and questions!
