Focal adhesion complexes (FACs) containing integrin beta 1, talin, vinculin, talin, alpha-actinin, and paxillin formed within 15 min when round cells bound magnetic microbeads coated with integrin ligands, such as fibronectin or RGD-containing peptide, but not when coated with acetylated-low density lipoprotein. Newly formed FACs were isolated and collected for biochemical analysis using a combination of detergent extraction, sonication, dounce homogenization, and magnetic pelleting. Isolated… CONTINUE READING
