Dynamic organization of the actin system in the motile cells of Dictyostelium

Abstract

The actin system forms a supramolecular, membrane-associated network that serves multiple functions in Dictyostelium cells, including cell motility controlled by chemoattractant, phagocytosis, macropinocytosis, and cytokinesis. In executing these functions the monomeric G-actin polymerizes reversibly, and the actin filaments are assembled into membrane… (More)
