Improved visualization of actin filament branching in lamellipodia. EM of keratocyte or fibroblast lamellipodial actin network after cytochalasin D treatment (0.2 μM for 30 min or 0.5 μM for 10 min). Image corresponds to a panel in Figure 2b from J Cell Biol. 1999 May 31;145(5):1009-26. All of the panels from Figure 2b are available as CIL 34894-34901.
Procedures for detergent extraction, immunostaining, S1 decoration, light, and EM were described previously (Svitkina et al., 1995, 1996, 1997;Verkhovsky et al., 1995; Svitkina and Borisy, 1998).
