Latrunculin A and cytokine treatment in the same time

Would you treat the cells with the Latrunculin A first, to bind up all the monomeric G-actin first, and then treat the cells with the cytokine? That way the momomeric G-actin is all bound up and can not participate in the signaling of the cytokine, and you can ...

Latrunculin A and cytokine treatment in the same time

... level in time, +/- Latrunculin A (a cell permeable marine toxin that disrupts microfilament organization by formation of a 1:1 complex with monomeric G-actin). As I believe there is an involvement of the actin in the signaling via the receptor I study, I am trying to see that using this ...
