There is mounting evidence that regulation of actinmembrane anchoring by lipids and dedicated anchoring proteins is critical for the formation of dynamic actin structures needed for essential functions such as cell division, migration, and mechanosensing.
In this project we aim to investigate the effect of mechanical forces in the anchoring proteins and its role during attachment.
