filamin B

filamin B

(fil'ă-min),
A 560-kD actin dimeric protein that binds actin filaments into three-dimensional lattice networks enabling the cell to form thin flat filopodia that permits the cell to migrate.

siRNAs targeting the human Filamin B (Filamin B siRNA: sc-60641; Santa Cruz, CA, USA) the Aminopeptidase N (CD13 siRNA: sc-29960; Santa Cruz), and a scrambled (siRNA-A control: sc-37007; Santa Cruz) mRNAs, were used to transfected BM-MSC cultures by means of Lipofectamine 2000 (Invitrogen, CA, USA) according to the manufacturer's protocol.
Among the eleven identified proteins, we selected the Filamin B and CD13 to evaluate whether they could be involved in the key functions of senescent BM-MSCs.
These results suggest that Filamin B is not involved in the determination of primary (stress induced) senescence whereas its presence could be part of the mechanism that regulate the paracrine senescence induction in human BM-MSCs.
