A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Cellular force transmission and mechanotransduction are critical in embryogenesis, normal physiology, and many diseases. Talin plays a key role in these processes by linking integrins to force-generating actomyosin. Using the previously characterized FRET-based talin tension sensor, we observed variations of tension both between and within individual focal adhesions in the same cell. Assembling and sliding adhesions showed gradients with higher talin tension toward the cell center, whereas mature, stable adhesions had uniform talin tension. Total talin accumulation was maximal in high-tension regions; by contrast, vinculin intensity was flat or maximal at the adhesion center, and actin intensity was maximal toward the cell center. To investigate mechanism, we combined talin tension imaging with cellular cryotomography to visualize the correlated actin organization at nanometer resolution. Regions of high talin tension had highly aligned linear actin filaments, whereas regions of low tension had less-well-aligned F-actin. These results reveal an orchestrated spatiotemporal relationship between talin tension, actin/vinculin localization, local actin organization, and focal adhesion dynamics.
