Microfilaments are the smaller, thin components of the cytoskeleton composed of the protein actin. In many cells, actin accounts for 5% or more of the total protein in the cell. Actin can exist as a monomer or, similar to the tubulin of microtubules, can polymerize to form thin thread-like structures (∼7 nm in thickness) called filamentous actin. In most cells, about half of the actin is present in the monomeric conformation because it is bound to the regulatory protein thymo­ sin. Rapid changes in rates of polymerization– depolymerization produce changes in the cell surface that produce lamellipodia (essentially cell projections) and ultimately cell movement and migration.

The technology used is based on a well-characterized relationship between cell number and the amount of a specific dye that binds to DNA. 2.

Although these assays are now automated, a milk smear is used to calibrate these machines. 2 illustrates the relationship between milk somatic cell count and milk production.

These posttranslational modifica­ tions can markedly affect the structure of the protein. Common modifications include the addition of sugar or phosphate groups. Other components can also be added to developing secretory vesicles in the Golgi. For example, in the mammary gland, the milk sugar lactose is synthesized within the Golgi apparatus by the action of galactosyl-transferase and α-lactalbumin. Lysosomes and peroxisomes Peroxisomes are intracellular vesicles containing a mixture of enzymes, namely, oxidases and catalases.
