    Sammanfattning : alpha-actinin is a ubiquitous protein found in most eukaryotic organisms. The ability to form dimers allows alpha-actinin to cross-link actin in different structures. In muscle cells alpha-actinin is found at the Z-disk of sarcomeres. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : In eukaryotes, the actin cytoskeleton plays an important role in a large variety of cellular events. Its reorganization is regulated by a plethora of actin-modulating proteins, such as α-actinin. α-actinin is a ubiquitous actin-binding protein that belongs to the spectrin superfamily. LÄS MER
