- Structure, assembly, and dynamics of actin filaments in situ and in vitroC A Schoenenberger
M E Müller Institute for Structural Biology, Biozentrum, University of Basel, CH 4506 Basel, Switzerland
Microsc Res Tech 47:38-50. 1999..The detailed knowledge of the structure, assembly, and dynamic behavior of actin provides important pieces in solving the puzzle of how the different isoforms can be so versatile despite their extremely high sequence identity...
- Conformation-specific antibodies reveal distinct actin structures in the nucleus and the cytoplasmC A Schoenenberger
M E Müller Institute for Structural Biology, Biozentrum, University of Basel, CH 4056 Basel, Switzerland
J Struct Biol 152:157-68. 2005..Our results indicate that distinct actin conformations and/or structures are present in the nucleus and the cytoplasm of different cell types and that their distribution varies in response to external signals...
- High resolution imaging of native biological sample surfaces using scanning probe microscopyA Engel
ME Müller Institute for Structural Biology, Biozentrum, Klingelbergstr 70, CH 4056, Basel, Switzerland
Curr Opin Struct Biol 7:279-84. 1997..Progress has recently been made in imaging protein-DNA complexes, individual oligomers and protein arrays. Scanning probe microscopes are now tools that complement X-ray crystallography and electron microscopy...
- Differential epitope tagging of actin in transformed Drosophila produces distinct effects on myofibril assembly and function of the indirect flight muscleV Brault
M E Müller Institute, Biozentrum, University of Basel, CH 4056 Basel, Switzerland
Mol Biol Cell 10:135-49. 1999..Our findings suggest that the N terminus of actin is less sensitive to modifications than the C terminus, because it can be tagged and still polymerize into functional thin filaments...
