Amoeba proteus has two types of cytoplasmic filaments that are thought to be important in cell motility, cytoplasmic streaming, and changes in cytoplasmic consistency : thin, 50-70 A wide filaments, and short, thick, 160 A wide rods (Pollard and Ito, 1970) . The thin filaments resemble the actin filaments of muscle (Hanson and Lowy, 1963), Acanthamoeba (Weihing and Korn, 1969 ; Pollard et al ., 1970), and Physarum (Hatano and Oosawa, 1966) . Cell-free extracts of Amoeba proteus show… CONTINUE READING
