Finding the Link Between Actin Polymerization and Function

Ph.D. student Nilaj Chakrabarty discussed his work with invited keynote speaker and OSU professor Anthony Brown.

By Amanda Biederman Along the axon of a neuron, the cytoskeletal protein actin plays several important roles in neuron function, including cell signaling and axon elongation. But for years, scientists did not know how actin gets transported from their manufacturing site to their target locations. Recently, actin was found to […]
