CAR fish fibroblast transfected with mCherry-Actin and GFP-Vasp- see: Fibroblast (100x)
This video illustrates the polymerization of actin, a protein which drives cell movements. Actin acts like the “scaffold” of a cell, so understanding how it forms is important is to basic cellular research and can help answer further questions on how cells form.
