Number of total filaments in each F-actin ring

Range 1,100 to 2,100 Table - link filaments/ring
Organism Fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe

Method "Cell wall materials were enzymatically digested and the cells were permeabilized with Triton X-100. Myosin S1 was added to the cells to decorate F-actin and the cells were processed for examination by transmission electron microscopy."
Comments "The total number of F-actin in the rings was between 1,100 and 2,100 (Table I)."
