Vimentin intermediate filaments (IFs) are part of a family of proteins that constitute one of the three filament systems in the cytoskeleton, a major contributor to cell mechanics. One property that distinguishes IFs from the other cytoskeletal filament types, actin filaments and microtubules, is their highly hierarchical assembly pathway, where a lateral association step is followed by elongation. Here we present an innovative technique to follow the elongation reaction in solution and in situ… CONTINUE READING
