Example sentences for: actin-based

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

  • TNTs are actin-based and devoid of microtubules: interestingly most other types of cell protrusions also contain actin (Condeelis 1993; Rorth 2003).

  • Myosin II, a key component of this actin-based cytoskeleton, has been shown to be essential for cytokinesis of D. discoideum cells in suspension as well as for efficient chemotaxis and morphogenetic changes in shape during development) [ 1 2 3 ] . All of these roles require myosin II to be in the form of thick filaments.

  • As infections were most efficient in subconfluent Caco-2 cells, which do not have differentiated apical and basolateral surfaces, we chose these conditions for our microarray experiments with the goal of inducing as much actin-based motility as possible.

  • It is immediately apparent that no genes encoding proteins known to be involved in L. monocytogenes actin-based motility are induced by infection.

  • It remains possible that specific genes not present on the microarrays used here (representing about half the human genome) may be induced by actin-based motility, but it is nonetheless clear that bacterial subversion of the actin cytoskeleton does not result in any large-scale, coordinated transcriptional response.
