  • The Arp3-cleft closes after ATP is bound, with the conformational changes then propagating throughout the complex: this is caused by a 4.1° rotation of subdomains 1 and 2 towards 3 and 4, which resembles a 'scissor'-motion which also occurs in actin monomers. (wordpress.com)

  • these are folded in a way rather similar to actin, but with more extended surface loop to allow interaction with neighbouring subunits within the complex. (wordpress.com)
  • as structural data already suggested, the two Arp-subunits are capable of dimerizing with each other and could hence form the first two subunits of the new branch in a similar fashion to actin dimerization, forming a heterodimer with hydrophobic residues, highly conserved between actin and the Arp-subunits, to stabilize the interactions . (wordpress.com)
  • Several Arp2/3-complex subunits possess sites capable of binding actin directly, which could explain why the Arp2/3-complex seems to promote actin cross-linking as well as branch formation. (wordpress.com)
  • The most crucial process in the activation of nucleation activity of the complex is the binding and subsequent hydrolysis of ATP , with nucleotides determining the affinity for regulatory proteins, causing structural changes in subunits that allow regulatory proteins to bind or dissociate from the complex. (wordpress.com)
  • Within the Arp2/3-complex however, the two actin-related proteins, 2 and 3, have minimal contact in the inactive nucleotide-free complex: activation occurs in a multi-stage process, in which the two Arp-subunits are brought together until they resemble two successive actin-subunits.

  • beta-actin
