Actin polymerization is required for negative feedback regulation of epidermal growth factor-induced signal transduction.


Epidermal growth factor (EGF) induces rapid actin filament assembly in the membrane skeleton of a variety of cells. To investigate the significance of this process for signal transduction, actin polymerization is inhibited by dihydrocytochalasin B (CB). CB almost completely abolishes EGF-induced actin polymerization, as assessed by quantitative confocal… (More)
