The aim of our present research was to visualize how the plasma membrane is modified and how the cytoskeleton interacts with the attachment and ruffled border regions of resorbing osteoclasts. In order to view the surface modification of membranes and associated cytoskeleton, we employed the method of cell-shearing combined with quick-freezing and rotary replication to expose and replicate an extensive area of the cytoplasmic face of the surface membrane of osteoclasts in contact with synthetic… CONTINUE READING
