Mechanics of Cell Movement Cell has polarity 1) Extension- membrane protrusions form at leading edge powered by actin polymerization 2) Adhesion- Membrane protrusions stick to the substratum by formation of focal adhesions 3) Translocation- Cytoplasm from rear of cell streams to front due to myosin II-mediated contraction in rear of cell 4) De-adhesion and endocytic recycling Focal adhesions in rear of cell are detached Membrane and FA are endocytosed and recycled to front for formation of new FA 35

Branching of microfilaments aid in forward movements How does actin polymerization help move a cell? Network forms via Arp2/3 A ctin-R elated P rotein Binds to F-actin at a 70° angle Nucleates formation of new actin filament Forms a meshwork to move entire cell, not just finger-like projections 39

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
