Measurement of rate constants for actin filament elongation in solution.

Abstract

This paper describes a simple method to measure the rate constants for actin filament elongation using pyrene-actin fluorescence as a measure of the polymer concentration and unlabeled actin filaments as nuclei. With careful selection of conditions, the initial rate of polymerization is directly proportional to the actin monomer concentration above the… (More)
