Speed of actin-based movement in cell extract

Value 4.5 µm/min Range: ±0.6 µm/min
Organism Bacteria Listeria monocytogenes
Reference Laurent, V. et al., Role of proteins of the Ena/VASP family in actin-based motility of Listeria monocytogenes. J Cell Biol. 1999 Mar 22 144(6):1245-58. p.1249 table I top rowPubMed ID10087267
Method Measured by analysis of microscopy images taken of Listeria monocytogenes in platelet extracts. "The control was performed by adding to the extract a volume of PBS equal to the volume of reagent added to the sample."
Comments Value extracted from Table 1, experiment 1. There are other values in the paper that differ by up to 1.5-fold from this value. 12 measurements.
