Scientific information: 
Scientific info: Actin is a highly abundant globular protein found in the cytosol of all eukaryotic cells that assembles in a head-to-tail arrangement to form double helical, polarized microfilaments. Actin microfilaments constitute one of the 3 major cytoskeletal structures, and they participate in many important cellular processes including muscle contraction, cell motility, cytokinesis, vesicle and organelle movement, cell signaling, the establishment and maintenance of cell junctions and cell shape. In vertebrates, three main groups of actin isoforms, alpha, beta, and gamma, have been identified, in most cell types, beta-actin is the primary component of the cytoskeleton. Fusions of fluorescent proteins to beta-actin have proven very useful tools in elucidating the dynamics of actin microfilaments in many cellular processes. EMD Millipore’s LentiBrite GFP-beta-actin lentiviral particles provide bright fluorescence and precise localization to enable live cell analysis of actin microfilament dynamics in difficult-to-transfect cell types.
