A comparison of fluorescent Ca(2+) indicators for imaging local Ca(2+) signals in cultured cells.
Irvine, United States. In Cell Calcium, Dec 2015
Altogether, nine synthetic Ca(2+) dyes (Fluo-4, Fluo-8, Fluo-8 high affinity, Fluo-8 low affinity, Oregon Green BAPTA-1, Cal-520, Rhod-4, Asante Calcium Red, and X-Rhod-1) and three genetically-encoded Ca(2+)-indicators (GCaMP6-slow, -medium and -fast variants) were tested; criteria include the magnitude, kinetics, signal-to-noise ratio and detection efficiency of local Ca(2+) puffs.
Rho GTPases and actin dynamics in membrane protrusions and vesicle trafficking.
London, United Kingdom. In Trends Cell Biol, 2006
However, recent research indicates that several other members of the Rho family, including Rif, RhoD, TC10 and Wrch1, and also related Rho-of-plants proteins (ROPs) in plants, stimulate actin polymerization and affect plasma membrane protrusion and/or vesicular traffic.
RhoD, Src, and hDia2C in endosome motility.
Bethesda, United States. In Dev Cell, 2003
A recent report from Marino Zerial and colleagues examining RhoD identifies mDia2C, a novel splice variant of mDia2, and Src as components of the regulatory machinery influencing actin-dependent endosome movement.
