  The aim of this study was to show the influence of Trisenox (arsenic trioxide, ATO) on cytoplasmic and nuclear F-actin organization in HL human leukemia cell line. Changes in localization were determined with the use of fluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry. Alterations, in both cytoplasmic and nuclear actin, were observed in cells exposed to by: 4. 2. Actin cytoskeleton, myosin and the cell cycle Actin cytoskeleton in cell cycle control Actin is a highly conserved globular protein found in almost all eukaryotic cells. It forms cellular scaffold structures that pro-vide cells with their shape, tension support, intracellular vesicular.

  Myosins are often referred to as molecular motors because they use energy to move. They interact with another protein called actin; actin proteins are organized into filaments to form a network (the cytoskeleton) that gives structure to cells and can act as a track for myosin to move along. Special Issue: The Actin-Myosin Interaction in Muscle: Background and Overview. by John Squire. Int. J. Mol Comparatively less is known about actin-myosin interactions within the filament lattice of muscle, where myosin by X-ray crystallography needed to explain the structure of the different actomyosin interactions observed in situ.

Kinesin and dynein work on microtubules while myosin works on actin. Conventional myosin (myosin II) consists of 2 heavy chains and 4 light chains. Each heavy chain has a globular head, then there's a neck region followed by a long tail. The tails coil around each other. The tails interacting allows for a bipolar myosin filament. The globular head part binds actin and hydrolyzes ATP. Myosin VI expression regulates instead the organization of actin networks in the cytoplasm. Using a cell‐free assay, we showed that myosin VI recruited actin at the surface of isolated melanosomes. Myosin VI is involved in the endocytic‐recycling pathway, and this pathway contributes to the transport of a melanogenic enzyme to maturing Cited by:

Nematodes synthesize two major classes of myosin heavy chains. These heavy chains associate to form only homodimeric myosin molecules, and these myosin homodimers are anti-genically different from one another (Schachat, Garcea and Epstein, ).

Actin filaments, which are central to biological functions, such as muscle contraction, cell motility, cell division and vesicle transport, are rarely seen in the normal interphase nucleus, and phalloidin, which is commonly used to detect cytoplasmic actin filaments (Cooper, ), rarely stains the r, this does not exclude the presence of nuclear Cited by: Earlier, studying actin localization in interphase nuclei of two-cell mouse embryos, we have found out that after embryos treatment by antibody to the C-terminal domain, nuclear labeling was much brighter than cytoplasm fluorescence, and this signaled about predominant nuclear localization of antibody-detected by: 2.
