Learning Goal & Outcome Goal: Understand the role of the cytoskeleton in cell migration & adhesion. Outcome: Students will be able to predict the effects of cytoskeletal changes on cell migration & adhesion. Why do cells move?

Normal Tissue Developmen Wound Healing Normal Cell Function re there situations when cells move whe hey should not? Metastasis A To move the boat to the RIGHT A. Remove anchor A

B. Remove anchor B B Focal Adhesions: cellular anchors to the extracellular space extracellular space (outside) extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins

integrins cell membrane cytoplasm (inside) adaptor complex Rho GTPases

actin filament direction of myosin pulling myosin II cuts actin filaments X cofilin

LIM kinase Focal Adhesions: cellular anchors to the extracellular space Outside of Cell extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins

3) integrins lose attachment! adaptor complex adaptor complex actin filament Rho

GTPase actin filament LIM kinase myosin II Cofilin direction of myosin pulling

Cofilin 2) lack of tension along actin! Rho GTPase 1) Cuts actin filaments

LIM kinase cell membrane cytoplasm (inside) A - trailing edge direction of cell migration

B- leading edge Which side of the cell would you predict cofilin to be most active? (A or B) What happens if cofilin cuts actin filaments at the leading edge of the cell? A. Cell stops migration B. Cell starts migration C. Cell re-attaches to the Extracellular Matrix

(ECM) Which of the following mimics the effect of cofilin activity on cellECM adhesion: A. Separation of Integrin from the ECM B. Activation of LIM Kinase C. Elimination of Myosin II : Actin interaction D. A, B, C E. A and C Homework

Cilengitide is a drug that is thought to act by interfering with the binding of specific integrin proteins to extracellular matrix proteins. It has been shown to be effective in treating breast cancer. Using the diagram for cell motility, how do you think cilengitide may affect breast cancer cells? Group (or homework) question #2 Based on the model, you decide to use

(interference) RNAi to reduce the function of the following genes. Predict the effects of each RNAi treatment on the activity of cofilin. Answer = active or inactive. a. LIM kinase b. Rho GTPase c. Myosin II Open ended discussion question The actin filaments in the cytoskeleton are critical for cell motility in normal and cancer cells.

Conversion of cofilin from inactive to active is regulated by phosphorylation:dephosphorylation. When cofilin is phosphorylated, it becomes inactivated. What is a likely outcome of the following on cell motility? Blocking cofilin Phosphorylation Enhancing cofilin Phosphorylation Blocking the activity of LIMKinase When integrins bind to the ECM to the leading edge of a mobile cell, which of the following occur?

A) true, B) false Cofilin is active Actin filaments are not cleaved LIM kinase is inhibiting cofilin activity Cells are able to migrate Cofilin
