We propose a tentative model of cartilage damage by Fn-fs: after Fn-fs bind to receptor, receptor aggregation is disrupted and actin distribution is altered.
Both of sarcomeric and cytoplasmic actin filaments are usually associated with tropomyosin.
Instead, these membrane ruffles belong to a distinct class of generic dynamic behavior: wave-fronts, the wave serves as a propagating wall connecting high and low actin concentrations.
To measure the mechanics of muscle myosin, the two ends of an actin filament are attached to optically trapped beads, and the actin filament is then brought into contact with a single myosin molecule fixed onto the surface of a glass pedestal.
Furthermore, confocal microscopy findings confirmed that PEG contributes to the regulation of endothelial cell barrier by rearranging the actin cytoskeleton.
Instead, actin was trafficked into the nuclei of the stem cells, where it had the surprising effect of inducing the cells to become osteoblasts.
The researchers discovered that actin has a natural asymmetry that leads fibers extending from the cell's edge to twist counterclockwise (see bottom images).

In our model, actin filaments can be manually slided over myosin filaments as is given in the sliding filament theory of muscle contraction and Z disc also move along with movement of actin filaments.
We also found diosgenin significantly inhibited actin polymerization, Vav2 phosphorylation and Cdc42 activation, which might be, at least in part, attributed to the anti-metastatic potential of diosgenin.
Scientists of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) in Germany investigated the different versions protein called actin found in Plasmodium parasite, which causes malaria.
