biosights: February 18, 2013 - Erecting a myosin scaffold for cytokinesis

submitted by: JCB
Cell division requires the coordinated action of proteins that promote actomyosin contraction, membrane trafficking, and extracellular matrix remodeling. Wloka et al. reveal that, in budding yeast, the type II myosin Myo1 acts as an immobile scaffold at the bud neck to organize proteins involved in forming the primary septum during cytokinesis. This biosights episode presents the paper by Wloka et al. from the February 4, 2013, issue of The Journal of Cell Biology and includes an interview...
