Abstract: One of the current dogmas in cytoskeleton research holds that actin filaments are attached to the cell membrane through integral membrane actin-binding proteins. We have challenged this concept, using an in vitro system composed of pure actin and liposomes, and have found that actin may also interact with membrane lipids. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) shows that when the actin molecule is in contact with such lipids, it undergoes a major conformational change which results in the complete disappearan… Show more
