Third-party-funded project

Actin of the cell nucleus

Project management at the University of Würzburg:

Participating scientists:

Actin has a dual localization in eukaryotic cells. Besides forming filaments in the cytoplasm, actin is also an ubiquitous constituent of nuclei. Although present at relatively high concentrations, actin normally does not polymerize within the nuclear compartment into canonical microfilaments. We are analyzing the structure and function of nuclear actin in different model systems.

Key words:
    nuclear actin
    nuclear export

Projekt period: from 01.1998 to 12.2001

Funding institution:
Sonstige öffentliche Mittel ( Haushalt Lehrstuhl )
