Term Information [More information on ruffle assembly]

Accession
GO:0097178
Name
ruffle assembly
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
membrane ruffle formation, membrane ruffling
Definition
The aggregation, arrangement and bonding together of a set of components to form a ruffle, a projection at the leading edge of a crawling cell; the protrusions are supported by a microfilament meshwork. The formation of ruffles (also called membrane ruffling) is thought to be controlled by a group of enzymes known as Rho GTPases, specifically RhoA, Rac1 and cdc42.
