Protein-tyrosine phosphorylation is regulated by protein-tyrosine kinases and protein-tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs). Src-family tyrosine kinases (SFKs) participate in the regulation of the actin cytoskeleton. Actin filaments can be accumulated in a cap at the dorsal cell surface, which is called the cortical actin cap. Here, we show that SFKs play an(More)
In the interphase nuclei of cultured cells, chromatin is compacted and organized in higher-order structures through the condensation and decondensation processes. Chromosomes in the interphase nucleus are known to occupy distinct territories. The chromosome territory-interchromatin compartment model premises that the interchromatin compartment is separated(More)
