  author={Fei Du and Haiyun Ren},
The actin cytoskeleton is one of the most important components of eukaryotic cytoskeletons. It participates in numerous crucial procedures of cells and has been studied by using various methods. The development and application of appropriate probes for actin visualization is the first and foremost step for functional analysis of actin in vivo. Since the actin cytoskeleton is a highly dynamic and sensitive structure, methods previously used to visualize actin often harm cells and cannot reveal… CONTINUE READING
