Sample text

A close examination of the spatiotemporal dynamics of the actin network flow field can reveal how the F-actin flow changes during the course of cell movement relative to such parameters as cell shape. This is important because cell shape is a balance of polymerization-mediated leading edge protrusion that result in cell-shape expansion, and retraction of the cell rear which is mediated by actomyosin contractility and results in cell-shape contraction. In fish keratocytes, this balance is well coordinated with protrusion and retraction occurring at a uniform pace resulting in the maintenance of crescent-moon shape.

Spatiotemporal dynamics of actin network flow in the course of a fragment’s movement is shown in the flow intensity color maps of Fig.

1 Cellular Fragments as Simplified Motility Systems Fragment Formation from Fish Keratocytes Fragments can be formed from fish keratocytes cultured for 24 h in DMEM (Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle’s Medium) supplemented with 15 % FBS. For more details, refer to the procedures described in (Adachi et al. 2009). Typically, fragmentation can be induced in migrating cells such a fish keratocytes by treating them with drugs that compromise the stability of the actin-myosin system responsible for maintaining an intact cellshape.
