Quantitative Analysis of Phosphoinositide 3‐Kinase (PI3K) Signaling Using Live‐Cell Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence (TIRF) Microscopy

This unit focuses on the use of total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy and image analysis methods to study the dynamics of signal transduction mediated by class I phosphoinositide

Stimulation of Fascin Spikes by Thrombospondin-1 Is Mediated by the Gtpases Rac and Cdc42

It is concluded that fascin is a critical component downstream of Rac and Cdc42 that is needed for actin cytoskeletal organization and cell migration responses to thrombospondin-1.

Spatial analysis of 3' phosphoinositide signaling in living fibroblasts, III: influence of cell morphology and morphological Polarity.

It is found that although the 3' PI pattern is affected by irregular contact area shape, cell morphology alone cannot explain the presence of hot or cold spots, and the morphological polarity of the cell may bias 3'PI signaling to promote persistent migration in fibroblasts.

New insights into the regulation and cellular functions of the ARP2/3 complex

The mechanisms underlying NPF-dependent regulation and the cellular functions of ARP2/3 are being unravelled using new chemical and genetic approaches, of particular interest is the role of the ARP/3 complex in vesicular trafficking and directional cell motility.

Requirement of Phosphatidylinositol 3-Kinase in Focal Adhesion Kinase-promoted Cell Migration*

It is shown that the PI3K inhibitors, wortmannin and LY294002, were able to inhibit FAK-promoted migration in a dose-dependent manner and that the binding of Src and p130Cas to FAK may not be sufficient for this event.

Inhibitory signalling to the Arp2/3 complex steers cell migration

A new protein is identified, Arpin, that inhibits the Arp2/3 complex in vitro, and it is shown that Rac signalling recruits and activates Arpin at the lamellipodial tip, like WAVE.

Quantitative elucidation of a distinct spatial gradient-sensing mechanism in fibroblasts

It is demonstrated that PDGF detection is governed by mechanisms that are fundamentally different from those in D. discoideum and neutrophils, which is consistent with a simpler system lacking the feedback loops that yield signal amplification and adaptation in amoeboid cells.

Spontaneous phosphoinositide 3-kinase signaling dynamics drive spreading and random migration of fibroblasts

Live-cell imaging using total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy revealed that, in the absence of soluble cues, 3′-phosphoinositides are enriched in a localized and dynamic fashion during active spreading and random migration of mouse fibroblasts on adhesive surfaces.
