This article represents the effects on actin filaments attached to magnetic nanoparticles when exposed to low-intensity magnetic field. In this approach, streptavidin functionalized magnetic nanoparticles were used to demonstrate the alignment of actin filament under external magnetic field of 22mT. To check the directionality of myosin on magnetically aligned actin filaments in vitro motility assay was performed with myosin and average velocity was found to be 3.50microm/s. It was observed… CONTINUE READING
