Cytostructural changes during fibroblast spreading and translocation and during the transition between the two states have been studied in living cells and in the same cells after fixation and immunofluorescent staining. In time-lapse sequences we observe that birefringent arcs, sometimes circles, concentric with the cell perimeter, form near the periphery of a spreading cell, or that arcs form near the leading edge of a Iocomoting cell. The arcs move toward the nucleus, where they disappear… Expand

The relationship of fibroblast translocations to cell morphology and stress fibre density.
TLDR
The foregoing observation suggest that the fibroblast tail is not an organelle essential for translocation, and the average velocities of cells of different population-doubling levels (10th, 30th, 40th) were approximately equal. Expand
Relation between cell activity and the distribution of cytoplasmic actin and myosin
TLDR
It is suggested that large actomyosin filament bundles are associated with nonmotile cytoplasm and that actively motile cy toplasm has a more diffuse distribution of these proteins. Expand
Microfilaments in Cellular and Developmental Processes
TLDR
The overall conclusion is that a broad spectrum of cellular and developmental processes are caused by contractile apparatuses that have at least the common feature of being sensitive to cytochalasin. Expand
MICROFILAMENTS AND CELL LOCOMOTION
TLDR
The role of microfilaments in generating cell locomotion has been investigated in glial cells migrating in vitro and removal of cytochalasin results in complete recovery of migratory capabilities, even in the absence of virtually all protein synthesis. Expand
Relationships between fibronectin (LETS protein) and actin
TLDR
It is proposed that fibronectin may participate in the formation of attachment plaques and discuss the interrelationship between plaques, microfilament bundles and fibronECTin in cell-substratum and cell-cell contacts. Expand
SUBPLASMALEMMAL MICROFILAMENTS AND MICROTUBULES IN RESTING AND PHAGOCYTIZING CULTIVATED MACROPHAGES
TLDR
Support is provided for the hypothesis that microfilaments and/or microtubules play a role in the translocation of plasma membrane required for the functionally similar processes of phagocytosis and cell attachment to glass. Expand

TLDR
Assemblies of cytoskeletal elements and plasma membrane evidently are structurally stable enough to be observable by electron microscopy and to survive isolation by the usual biochemical techniques, but observations of living cells show that many assemblies of cytOSkeleton and plasma membranes undergo rearrangement and interconversion. Expand
The role of microfilaments in the spreading process of JTC-12 cells.
TLDR
The circular bundles of the microfilaments inside the cell outline probably enable the concentrical spreading of JTC-12 cells by advancing and consolidating the peripheral cytoplasm. Expand
Arcs: curved microfilament bundles beneath the dorsal surface of the leading lamellae of moving chick embryo fibroblasts.

TLDR
Curved micro Filamentous structures, termed arcs, are frequently found in the leading lamellae of cultured fibroblasts and provide clues to the organisation and regulation of the microfilament system for movement. Expand
Filament arrangements in negatively stained cultured cells: the organization of actin.
TLDR
The present report describes the organization of the actin-like filaments in human skin fibroblasts and mouse 3 T 3 cells and the findings are discussed in relation to the mechanisms of non-muscle cell motility. Expand
