    Observation with a phase-contrast microscope clearly shows that melting of an A-band, i.e., a bundle of thick (myosin) filaments, in a rabbit skeletal myofibril occurs from both ends in the presence of high concentrations of KC1 and PP1. Thick filaments partially melted from both ends can be obtained in a myofibril.
