The actin cytoskeleton is an active gel which constantly remodels during cellular processes such as motility and division. Myosin II molecular motors are involved in this active remodeling process and therefore control the dynamic self-organization of cytoskeletal structures. Due to the complexity of in vivo systems, it is hard to investigate the role of(More)
Myosin II motors play several important roles in a variety of cellular processes, some of which involve active assembly/disassembly of cytoskeletal substructures. Myosin II motors have been shown to function in actin bundle turnover in neuronal growth cones and in the recycling of actin filaments during cytokinesis. Close examination had shown an intimate(More)
