...Daisuke Kiyoshima; Keisuke Kawakami; Kimihide Hayakawa; Hitoshi Tatsumi; Masahiro Sokabe The effects of mechanical force applied to the integrin clusters at focal contacts were examined in cultured human umbilical vein endothelial cells. When a fibronectin-coated glass bead was attached...

... of different plaque molecules, including vinculin, paxillin, tensin and phosphotyrosine-containing proteins. Ratio imaging revealed considerable molecular heterogeneity between and within adhesion sites. Most striking were the differences between focal contacts, which are vinculin- and paxillin-rich...

...Jorg Hagmann; Marianne Grob; Arkadiusz Welman; Gijsbert van Willigen; Max M. Burger ABSTRACT Platelets are anuclear, membrane-bounded fragments derived from megakaryocytes which, upon stimulation, assemble an actin skeleton including stress fibres and focal contacts. The focal contacts resemble...

... immunocytochemically distinct populations of β 1 integrins on fixed embryonic chick dermal fibroblasts. One population, recognized by the integrin activating mAb TASC, localizes to discrete regions of the cell, most likely focal contacts. These integrins co-localize with other proteins, such as vinculin and F-actin...

... and staining for F-actin appeared in patches. Vinculin, one of the components of focal contacts, was localized at the periphery of control cells. CL-A treatment moved the focal contacts towards the inside of the cell along the stress fibers, and this was followed by the rounding up of the cell. In addition...

... of such contacts depend on the thickness of the lamellae. Plaque-like focal contacts, distinguished on the basis of shape and low irradiance (darkness), are intimate adhesions to the substratum. These images can be interpreted if it is assumed that microfllaments associated with the lower membrane increase...
