Keeping the focus on biophysics and actin filaments in Nagoya: A report of the 2016 “now in actin” symposium

Ikuko Fujiwara, Akihiro Narita
Regulatory systems in living cells are highly organized, enabling cells to response to various changes in their environments. Actin polymerization and depolymerization are crucial to establish cytoskeletal networks to maintain muscle contraction, cell motility, cell division, adhesion, organism development and more. To share and promote the biophysical understanding of such mechanisms in living creatures, the “Now in Actin Study: -Motor protein research reaching a new stage-” symposium was organized at Nagoya University, Japan on 12 and 13, December 2016. The organizers invited emeritus professor of Nagoya and Osaka Universities Fumio Oosawa and leading scientists worldwide as keynote speakers, in addition to poster presentations on cell motility studies by many researchers. Studies employing various biophysical, biochemical, cell and molecular biological and mathematical approaches provided the latest understanding of mechanisms of cell motility functions driven by actin, microtubules, actin-binding proteins, and other motor proteins.
