Example sentences for: actin

How can you use “actin” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • That BDM inhibits one actin dependent process but not the other, may be an interesting difference in the location of polymerization within the cell - actin polymerization at the leading edge vs. the cell body, or a difference in the mechanism of actin polymerization - the leading edge vs. a Listeria bacterium.

  • Initial analysis of approximately 157,000 SAGE tags from PC12 cells cultured without or with NGF for 9 days revealed nearly 800 transcripts (of a total of at least 21,000) that are regulated by ± 6-fold or greater in response to NGF [ 11 ] . Of these, approximately 150 were assignable to named genes of known functions that regulate cellular behaviors ranging from actin and microtubule cytoskeleton assembly/disassembly, gene transcription, RNA processing, neurotransmission, and energetics.

  • This result indicates that the inhibitory activity of CAP is restricted to one side of the cells, thus demonstrating that actin dynamics can be independently modified at opposite poles of an epithelium.

  • As we stated earlier, the absence of stress fibers in the A549 cell suggests that stress fibers per se are not essential for RSV growth either, and that one or more steps of the Virus (F) → RhoA → profilin → actin signaling pathway is perhaps missing or nonfunctional in A549.

  • Transcripts abundantly represented in the library include genes encoding cytoskeleton proteins (such as myosin, actin, UNC-87, troponin T) and proteins that carry out core eukaryotic energetic and metabolic processes (for example ADP/ATP translocase, lactate dehydrogenase) (Table 1).
