 Title    Polymerization of Actin in the Absence and Presence of Cytochalasin B: Problems of Determining "Critical Concentration"  
 Abstract    A Various concentrations o f actin (0.3 or 1 mM MgCl2, 1 mM A T P , 1 mM E G T A) reached their final degree o f polym erization (m easured by a pyrene dye attached to actin) earlier in the pres­ ence o f cytochalasin B than in its absence. The curves relating concentrations o f polym eric F-actin to total actin concentration were under these conditions highly nonlinear making an unam biguous extrapolation to zero F-actin concentration (to deduce the "critical concentration" o f actin poly­ m erization) im possible. The concentration o f actin, above which polym erization occurred, was unaltered by cytochalasin B (although for reasons not yet understood the specific fluorescence intensity of polym erized actin was lower in the presence of cytochalasin B than in its absence). The results show that a distinct "critical concentration" o f actin polymerization must not always be well defined.
