Brush Border Myosin-I (BBMI) is a single-headed, unconventional myosin found in the microvilli of intestinal epithelial cells where it forms lateral bridges between the core bundle of actin filaments and the plasma membrane of the microvillus. A three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of BBMI was made from images of negatively stained, two-dimensional (2D) crystals grown on lipid monolayers formed from mixtures of phosphatidylserine and phosphatidylcholine. The resolution of the 3D map extends to approximately 20 A and allows identification of all of the major structural domains of BBMI. The BBMI molecule is composed of three domains: a globular motor domain, a light-chain-binding domain and a lipid-binding domain. In our map, the putative motor domain is connected to an extended density, which we believe to be the light-chain-binding domain. This long, narrow region has three distinct bends, which may delineate the bound calmodulin light chains. Following the last calmodulin there is density which extends for a short distance across the lipid surface and is presumably the carboxy-terminal lipid-binding domain.
