  76. Pseudopodial movement
    • 1. Actin subunits are bound to actin bindin proteins to keep them from assembling
    • 2. upon stimulation, hydrostatic force carries the subunits through a weakened gel to the hyaline cap. The actin subunits are freed fom the regulatroy proteins by lipids in the cell membrane
    • 3. Subunits quickly assemble into filaments and upon interaction with ABP from gel like ectoplasm
    • 4. At the trailing edge, calcium ions activate ABP that releases actin filaments from the gel loosening the network enough that myosin molecules can pull it
    • 5. Subunits pass through the tube of ectoplasms to be reused
