An interacting head motif.

A schematic view of an interacting head motif: the motor domain of one myosin head (the blocked head, shown in purple) has its actin binding site blocked by interactions with the second head (the free head). The essential light chain (ELC) and regulatory light chain (RLC) of each myosin head are also involved in the formation of the interacting head motif.
