The study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) gives the first clear details of how the binding sites of CaMKII act to align actin filaments into long, rigid bundles.
"Being named again to this prestigious list highlights the market demand for sophisticated robotic control and tasking software - and how Actin can save companies years developing in-house software or integrating open source approaches," said Neil Tardella, CEO, Energid.
The flexibility of Actin allows customers to build on the exact motion control capabilities they need to create their own proprietary products.
The scientists edited this ACTG1 mutation into a line of mice using cutting-edge CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing technology, and found that it had severe effects on the function of actin.
Energid's general robot control and tasking framework, Actin, is built to meet the rigorous requirements of industrial, commercial, collaborative, and consumer robotic systems.
Myosin II is an adenosine triphosphate (ATP)dependent protein that generates force and movement along the actin filaments.
To visualize actin filaments, after the secondary antibody incubation, the zygotes were treated with a 200-fold dilution of rhodamine phalloidin (R415; Molecular Probes) by DW for 2 h at room temperature and then rinsed in rinse solution three times.
Deficient alpha smooth muscle actin expression as a cause of intestinal pseudo-obstruction: fact or fiction?
The cytoskeleton is a highly dynamic web composed of different molecules including actin, tubulin, and vimentin, whose role is dependent on the context and structures generated in each condition, but it also relies on the cell type.
Thirty-five adult male Wistar rats (Charles River Laboratories, Spain), with body weight 200-220 g at the beginning of the experiments, were used for the behavioral and nestin/ actin Western blot experiments.
This technique allowed us to monitor the sequence of events that result in ATP hydrolysis by the myosin molecule and the corresponding mechanical interactions between myosin and actin. It also allowed us to quantitatively measure thermal effects on coupling.
Clostridium difficile toxin (CDT), which induces the depolymerization of the actin cytoskeleton via ADP-ribosylation [7], causes the formation of cytoneme-like protrusions at the surface of intestinal epithelial cells which wrap and embed bacteria Clostridia [23, 24].
Actin is one of the major cytoskeletal proteins that participates in important cellular functions such as muscle contraction, cell motility, and cell signaling [2].
