The cover photo of this issue and Fig. 1 depicts a phylogenetic tree of the ever-expanding myosin superfamily, which groups myosins into 12 different classes. For simplicity only selected members of some of the more populated classes are shown. More detailed phylogenetic analyses of the myosin I and myosin II family are shown in Fig. 2. To date, the best represented classes remain those of the ‘conventional myosin 11s and the now well studied myosin Is. There are multiple members of these two… CONTINUE READING
