Internal stress in kinetically trapped actin bundle networks

Author affiliations

Abstract

By confocal microscopy combined with local cutting of single bundles, we show that the actin binding protein filamin is already sufficient to generate prestress in in vitro actin networks by cross-linking and bundling actin filaments during network polymerization forming a kinetically trapped network structure.
