Unformatted text preview: Intermediate Filaments : 10 nm filaments, (100A) (microfilaments 8nm, microtubules are 28nm) in Epithelia, Desmin, desmosomes, Cytokeratins in Fibroblasts Vimentin Nerve Tissue: Neurofilament proteins Glia glial fibrilloacidic protein GFAP Nov 1312:19 PM Nov 1012:23 PM 1 IN both smooth and striated muscle, Ca++ play a triggering role. Striated: bind to troponin C molecular movements Smooth: binds to calmodulin enzyme "cascade" Calmodulin and troponin c seem to share a good deal of sequence similarity Ca++ control: Striated Muscle physical association between the sarcotubule system/sarcoplasmic reticulum/fiber smooth muscle several sources plasma membrane, SER, mitochondria hormone receptors in the membrane trigger a series of reactions that cause Ca++ to be released from the SER. In nonmuscle cells actin is present, so is myosin triggered by Ca++ calmodulin. For Cilia, Ca++ cause a change in the beat frequency Nov 1310:17 AM Cytoskeleton three components: microtubules: cell shape, movement of particles/structures within the cell intermediate filaments structural support microfilaments stress fibers (cells in culture), movement of membranes, cell exterior ruffles, microvilli.
