The kinetics of force-induced cell reorganization depend on microtubules and actin

Cytoskeleton

Mar 2, 2010

Alexandra M GoldynRalf Kemkemer

Abstract

The cytoskeleton is an important factor in the functional and structural adaption of cells to mechanical forces. In this study we investigated the impact of microtubules and the acto-myosin machinery on the kinetics of force-induced reorientation of NIH3T3 fibroblasts. These cells were ...read more

Microtubules & Microtubule-Associated Proteins (Keystone)

Microtubule organization and dynamics are regulated by microtubule-associated proteins that interact with microtubules to regulate dynamic instability. Here is the latest research on microtubules and microtubule-associated proteins.

Cytoskeletal Dynamics

The cytoskeleton is a dynamic system that is involved in numerous cellular functions. The dynamic cytoskeleton has a close relationship with formation and trafficking of vesicles, spindle localization, cell compartmentation and more. Here is the latest research on cytoskeletal dynamics.

Cytoskeletal Collection

The cytoskeleton is a dynamic network of interlinking protein filaments that extends from the plasma membrane to the nucleus. Here is the latest research.

Cytoskeleton Dynamics in Cell Motility

Cell motility depend directly on the regulated dynamics of the cytoskeleton. Here is the latest research focusing on cytoskeleton dynamics in various different modes of motility including flagellar, gliding, and twitching motility.

Cytoskeleton & Cell Polarity

A dynamic cytoskeleton is critical for the generation of cell polarity. This feed focuses on cell polarity and the cytoskeleton, including actin and microtubular cytoskeletal organization.
