Microfilaments (actin)
Background image of page 8
Microfilaments (Actin Filaments) The structural role of microfilaments is to bear tension, resisting pulling forces within the cell They form a 3-D network called the cortex just inside the plasma membrane to help support the cell’s shape

Types of movement mediated by Microfilaments Muscle contraction Cytoplasmic streaming Amoeboid movement
Background image of page 10
Microfilaments that function in cellular motility contain the protein myosin in addition to actin In muscle cells, thousands of actin filaments are arranged parallel to one another Thicker filaments composed of myosin interdigitate with the thinner actin fibers
