Example sentences for: actin-binding

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

  • The actin-binding activity of most fimbrins is inhibited by Ca 2+[ 51].

  • α-Actinin is an actin-binding cytoskeletal protein present in a variety of cells [ 1 ] and in focal adhesion sites where cells adhere to the substrate [ 2 ] . There is biochemical [ 3 ] and histologic [ 4 ] evidence that focal adhesion complexes, containing α-actinin and other footpad material, are left behind as a result of normal movement of cells [ 2 ] , perhaps at increased rates when neutrophils and monocytes move into inflammatory tissue.

  • As described previously [ 6 ] , a pGEX2 vector, encoding the actin-binding domain, residues 2-269 of chicken smooth muscle α-actinin, fused with the carboxy terminus of glutathione S-transferase (GST) with an engineered thrombin cleavage site, was kindly provided by Dr DR Critchley of the University of Leicester, UK.

  • The BTB domain is a highly conserved 120 amino acid, hydrophobic-rich, protein-protein interaction domain that mediates homodimerization and heterodimerization of a large number of proteins with diverse functions [ 9 ] . The three dimensional structure of one BTB domain [ 33 ] has been characterized through structure-function studies [ 34 ] . Proteins containing BTB domains are currently categorized into three groups [ 35 ] : 1) DNA-binding proteins often containing zinc fingers in the C-terminal region, 2) actin binding proteins that contain a kelch repeat of ~50 residues that terminate in a pair of glycine residues [ 36 ] and 3) proteins that have neither an actin-binding domain nor a DNA-binding domain.

  • 88e -49to 2.89 -16), which is an actin-binding domain present in the N-termini of spectrin-like proteins.
