Actin-Monomer-Binding Proteins by Pekka Lappalainen

By Pekka Lappalainen

The actin cytoskeleton performs a principal position in lots of mobile approaches together with phone motility, cytokinesis, endocytosis and phagocytosis. The constitution and dynamics of the actin cytoskeleton is regulated via a number of proteins that engage with monomeric and/or filamentous actin. Actin monomer binding proteins presents a entire view on actin monomer-binding proteins and the mechanisms in which they give a contribution to actin dynamics and numerous actin-dependent mobile approaches. This new name includes chapters that describe the elemental mechanisms of actin dynamics in addition to the structural ideas through which quite a few actin-binding proteins have interaction with actin.
