Cytoskeleton - Microfilaments

Adherens Junction
Epithelial cell microfilaments

This lecture introduces the smallest of the three cytoskeleton filament systems, the microfilaments.


This lecture will be presented by a guest expert lecturer Prof Peter Gunning.
With more than 150 papers in microfilament research
The guest lecturer will provide their own notes for this lecture.
