Actin and myosin represent the two major cytoskeletal proteins responsible for cell motility. In addition to muscle contraction, these proteins are also involved in many other movement processes of single cells and organs, e.g. locomotion, secretion, phagocytosis, cell division, etc.
Fibrous actin molecules form thin filaments in the contractile system of cells. Six electrophoretically characterized isoforms of actin can be distinguished in mammals. Four of these isoforms are found in muscle cells. Smooth and transversely striated muscle have different isoforms of alpha-actin. Detection of sarcomeric or smooth muscle actin can also be informative in the differentiation of muscle cells and in the differentiation or dedifferentiation of tumors.
