The T7 RNA polymerase-controlled expression of M69 aptamer that targets the Sec7 domain of protein cytohesin-1 (cyh1), a protein involved in the control of membrane-associated events and the remodeling of the cytoskeleton, resulted in a cell-spreading deficiency and a dramatic reorganization of F-actin distribution in leukocytes.
