Alpha-Actinin and myosin were associated into reorganized actin cable networks and partly formed stress fiber-like structures in platelets during surface activation. Double-label immunofluorescence staining using antibodies against alpha-actinin and platelet myosin heavy chain (MHC) showed that alpha-actinin and myosin were colocalized in the cell center at the early stage of activation and dynamically redistributed with shape change. In the later stage, two proteins were colocalized around the… CONTINUE READING
