Measurement of Mechanical Tension at cell-cell junctions using two-photon laser ablation
Authors:  Xuan Liang, Magdalene Michael and Guillermo A. Gomez, date: 12/20/2016, view: 7764, Q&A: 0
The cortical actomyosin cytoskeleton is found in all non-muscle cells where a key function is to control mechanical force (Salbreux et al., 2012). When coupled to E-cadherin cell-cell adhesion, cortical actomyosin generates junctional ...
Analysis of Myosin II Minifilament Orientation at Epithelial Zonula Adherens
Authors:  Magdalene Michael, Xuan Liang and Guillermo A. Gomez, date: 12/05/2016, view: 6885, Q&A: 0
Non-muscle myosin II (NMII) form bipolar filaments, which bind F-actin to exert cellular contractility during physiological processes (Vicente-Manzanares et al., 2009). Using a combinatorial approach to fluorescently label both N- and ...
