Localization of cross-linking proteins in fibroblast cytoskeleton. Immuno-EM of the cell edge or interior (CIL 34929) of cytochalasin D-treated Xenopus fibroblasts stained with α-actinin primary antibody and 18-nm gold-conjugated secondary antibody. Gold particles (yellow) reveal α-actinin at filament crossovers in the cell interior. A fluorescence image of fibroblast lamellipodia double stained with TRITC-phalloidin (red) and either α-actinin (green) is available at CIL 34924. The image corresponds to Figure 5f from J Cell Biol. 1999 May 31;145(5):1009-26.
Procedures for detergent extraction, immunostaining, S1 decoration, light, and EM were described previously (Svitkina et al., 1995, 1996, 1997;Verkhovsky et al., 1995; Svitkina and Borisy, 1998).
