Adhesion-dependent F-actin Pattern in Amoeba Proteus as a Common Feature of Amoebae and the Metazoan Motile Cells

Adhesion and movement of Amoeba proteus are both dependent on the appropriate arrangement of the F-actin cytoskeleton and on the presence of the cell nucleus. In this study the F-actin organization was examined by routine FITC-phalloidin staining and confocal laser microscopy in intact amoebae and in their nucleated and anucleated fragments, at different… CONTINUE READING
