Freely crawling cells are often viewed as randomly moving Brownian particles but they generally exhibit some directional persistence. This property is often related to their zigzag motile behaviors th...
In this issue of Structure, Jasnin et al. (2019) shows how actin waves on the ventral membrane of Dictyostelium cells propagate by de novo nucleation of oblique filaments that are polarized toward th...
Within the cytoplasm of a single cell, several actin networks can coexist with distinct sizes, geometries, and protein compositions. These actin networks assemble in competition for a limited pool of ...
The axon initial segment (AIS) comprises a sub-membranous lattice containing periodic actin rings. The overall AIS structure is insensitive to actin-disrupting drugs, but the effects of actin-disrupti...
In the original publication of the article, the wrong β-actin blots were pasted in Figs. 1b and 2c. The correct versions of Figs. 1b and 2c are given in this correction.
The overall objective of this study is to investigate the glycemic response of a 0%, 50%, 100% and 150% bolus insulin correction (based on personal insulin correction factor) of post-exerc...
This study is being conducted to evaluate and assess the electroencephalography wave patterns in different age patients undergoing surgery under general anesthesia. The aim of our study is...
Fibromyalgia pain syndrome is a common debilitating condition which associates mainly generalised pain, emotional distress and cognitive symptoms. The etiology is unknown, and no specific ...
This study evaluates the intrastromal correction of ametropia with a femtosecond laser made by 20/10 PERFECT VISION. This laser generates a beam of ultrashort, infrared pulses which enable...
Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine associated with vertebral rotation. Brace treatment is the most commonly used non-surgical treatment. To...
A family of low MOLECULAR WEIGHT actin-binding proteins found throughout eukaryotes. They remodel the actin CYTOSKELETON by severing ACTIN FILAMENTS and increasing the rate of monomer dissociation.
An actin capping protein that binds to the barbed-ends of ACTIN filaments. It is a heterodimer consisting of an alpha and a beta subunit. It regulates actin assembly by stabilizing actin oligomers for elongation. In SKELETAL MUSCLE, CapZ is localized to the Z-disk.
Actin capping proteins are cytoskeletal proteins that bind to the ends of ACTIN FILAMENTS to regulate actin polymerization.
High-amplitude compression waves, across which density, pressure, and particle velocity change drastically. The mechanical force from these shock waves can be used for mechanically disrupting tissues and deposits.
Techniques for separating distinct populations of cells.
