  1. 1. The dynamic microfilament system : cellular organization of actin and profilin and their association with cell signalling

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Lucie Hájková; Stockholms universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Zoological Cell Biology; zoologisk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Active shape changes and movement of whole cells, and translocations within cells are essential to life. For instance, during embryogenesis cell migration is a central theme. Wound healing depends on increased and directed motile activity of several cell types. READ MORE

  2. 2. Elements in regulation of the microfilament system

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Louise Hillberg; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cell motility; microfilament system; actin; tropomyosin; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Cell Biology; cellbiologi;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with cell motility. The process of rapid actin polymerization in the lamellipodium of a migrating cell is responsible for its protrusion. Studies have been made on some of the elements behind this event and special interest has been focused on the protein tropomyosin. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Actin Filament System Its Involvement in Cell Migration and Neurotransmitter Release

    University dissertation from Stockholm : The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Anna-Karin Johnsson; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]

    Abstract : The microfilament system consists of actin filaments as the major component and is regulated by a number of actin binding proteins. It is juxtaposed to the plasma membrane where it forms a dense cortical weave from where it pervades into the cell interior. READ MORE
