Precise spatiotemporal coordination of integrin adhesion complex dynamics is essential for efficient cell migration. For cells adherent to fibronectin, differential engagement of α5β1 and αVβ3 integrins is used to elicit changes in adhesion complex stability, mechanosensation, matrix assembly, and migration, but the mechanisms responsible for receptor(More)
Cell migration during wound healing requires adhesion receptor turnover to enable the formation and disassembly of cell-extracellular matrix contacts. Although recent advances have improved our understanding of integrin trafficking pathways, it is not known how extracellular ligand engagement controls receptor dynamics. Using atomic force microscopy, we(More)
The majority of the mRNA molecules in HeLa cells contain 1-2 residue(s) of m6Ap and one blocked, methylated 5' terminal "cap" structure. The hnRNA, which is longer than mRNA, contains both m6Ap and caps but 4-6 times as many m6Ap residues per chain. In addition, nuclear molecules contain T2 RNA ase-resistant, methyl-labeled oligonucleotides ("di-" and(More)
