Unformatted text preview: Positioning of nucleus via MTs. Myosin generates cytoplasmic streaming In alga Nitella actin rings works with myosin to move vesicles etc. Cell Migration Stress fibers associated with cell adhesion are long actin fibers which are interacting with myosin and other regulatory molecules. These fibers are contractile. Chemotaxis What Provides Directional Cues? What does a cell need on its surface to respond? What is the cell moving along? 4 steps of cell movement Rac, Rho, cdc42, actin and cell migration...
