5 [micro]M) was added to stain the actin filaments, and the myosin-II motor activity was monitored by AVEC-DIC and fluorescence microscopy.
Actin bundles detectable by AVEC-DIC microscopy assembled spontaneously in the meiotic phase extracts and formed interactive three-dimensional networks or pseudo-contractile rings by a mechanism of self-organization (6).
Fluorescence microscopy was used to view rhodamine-phalloidin stained actin filaments in the extracts, and AVEC-DIC microscopy was used to assay vesicle transport on actin filaments.
