Actin Confusion

  1. Apr 8, 2010 #1
    My textbook says that actin grows from the + end BUT
    shows a diagram where it's associating and dissocating AT BOTH ends and says that how treadmilling works. help?

    Does an actin-ATP recruit more actin? or does it just bind more strongly to ADP actin?

    How do you determine the direction of direction of treadmilling?

    thanks
