Actin structural proteins in cell motility

  title={Actin structural proteins in cell motility},
  author={Charles Casey Cunningham},
  journal={Cancer and Metastasis Reviews},
The machinery for cell locomotion is based in a network of polymerized actin filaments supporting the peripheral cytoplasm. This network or ‘gel’ consists of actin filaments in a variety of configurations, including cables, loose bundles, and branching arrays; all formed by the interaction of actin-associated proteins with actin filaments. For cell locomotion to occur, this network must be reversibly disassembled or ‘solated” to allow protrusion, then re-assembled to stabilize the resulting… CONTINUE READING
