actin and microtubule binding protein (Gonzales
et al, 1998).
The protein has been isolated on tubulin affinity columns and when purified then
co-sedimented with F-actin. Analysis of the binding to F-actin suggests an
affinity (Ka) of 1x106M-1.
Immunofluorscence localises Mip-90 to both microtubules and actin in fibroblast
with some nuclear staining also evident. The leading edge where ruffling
membrane underlain by a rich actin network was also stained with Mip-90
