Example sentences for: actin

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

  • It should be noted that besides profilin, there are many other cellular proteins known to modulate actin filamentation and cytoskeletal dynamics, and profilin itself binds to a large number proteins, many with poly-proline sequences [ 42 43 ] . Clearly, identification of the various members of the cytoskeletal signaling pathway will constitute an important step in understanding host-RSV interaction, and may lead to additional targets for pathological intervention.

  • An important aspect of actin cytoskeletal research has been the use of small molecules that affect actin dynamics and proteins that act on the cytoskeleton [ 1 ] . 2,3-butanedione monoxime (BDM) is a small molecule that inhibits the ATPase activity of muscle myosinII and reduces the force generated by this motor protein [ 2 3 ] . BDM was introduced to the cell biology community as a millimolar inhibitor of multiple non-muscle myosins with greatest potency in inhibiting non-muscle myosinII [ 4 ] . It was subsequently used, in concert with other approaches, to study nm-myosinII function in a variety of biological processes [ 5 6 7 8 ] . BDM was recently shown not to inhibit any non-muscle myosins so far tested, leaving the question of how it affects cells unanswered [ 9 10 ] .

  • This decrease may correspond to the mobilization of myosin-II from pre-existing cortical actin-myosin-II structures and may correlate with the redistribution of actin from the cortex to the cytoplasm [ 16 ] .

  • There is also evidence that the actin cytoskeleton is involved in mitosis and during separation of daughter cells after the successful segregation of chromosomes into daughter nuclei [ 3].

  • Actin is involved in dynamic structural changes observed in synapses [ 50].
