  1. Construeer een stroom geplaatst zoals aangegeven in de video. Zorg ervoor dat de Parafilm afdichting strak is en het gebruik van gewassen dekglaasjes.
  2. Incubeer actine-bindende middel in de kamer voor 5-10 '.
  3. Blokkeer niet-specifieke bindingsplaatsen op het glas dekglaasje met een blokkerend eiwit.
  4. Polymeriseren actine in de kamer door stroomt in G-actine in polymeriseren buffer.
  5. Wash-out niet-gepolymeriseerde actine door stromend dan buffer.

Subscription Required. Please recommend JoVE to your librarian.

  1. What is the second pair of shorter parafilm strips for? Why do you polymerize in the chamber and how? G-actin in polymerization buffer. Is't that F-actin? What is the actin binding agent and blocking protein and their buffers and their concentrations?
