Brief description Actin filaments are part of a dynamic network of protein fibres inside each cell and play a role in cell shape, movement and division. Cancer cells hijack specific types of actin filaments to spread throughout the body. Our aim is to find out how protein machines assemble these filaments from actin and different binding proteins that give each filament its specific function. This insight will allow us to improve drugs that inhibit filaments associated with cancer.
