Profilin is a small, actin-binding protein that functions at the intersection of signal transduction and cytoskeletal modifications. Increases in the number of profilin messages per cell correlate with sea urchin coelomocytes activation in response to injury. Here we show that coelomocytes respond to immune challenge from lipopolysaccharide with significant elevations in profilin transcripts per coelomyocyte.
