Actin and actin-binding protein (ABP) have recently been purified from human Here, the effect of ABP on the sedimentation of actin was studied. When ABP was added to preformed F-actin filaments, it bound until a maximum ratio of 1:9 (ABP:actin, mol:mol) was reached. However, when actin was polymerized in the presence of ABP, two and a half times more ABP(More)
