Abstract

Actin filaments form networks and bundles within the cytoplasm of cells. The actin filaments change continuously their organization by transition between the monomer and filament pool, by fragmentation and elongation of filaments, by disruption of filament bundles or by bundling of randomly oriented filaments. There is good evidence that changes of the organization of actin filaments are controlled by the action of transmembrane signals. For example, actin polymerizes rapidly when platelets are stimulated with thrombin or ADP or pancreatic ß-cells with glucose.1
