Unformatted text preview: hydrolysis of bound ATP to ADP reduces the strength of the binding between monomers and decreases the stability of the polymer. Polymerization is reversible [depolymerization occurs when necessary]. The equilibrium between monomers and filaments is dependent upon the concentration of free monomers in the cell. Assembly and disassembly is regulated in part by actin binding proteins...
