Actin participates in many important biological processes. Currently, intensive investigation is being carried out in a number of laboratories concerning the function of actin in these processes and the molecular basis of its functions. We present a glimpse into four of these areas: actin-like proteins in bacterial cells, actin in the eukaryotic nucleus, the conformational plasticity of the actin filament, and finally, Arp2/3-dependent regulation of actin filament branching and creation of new filament barbed ends.
