Bidirectional Interplay between Vimentin Intermediate Filaments and Contractile Actin Stress Fibers.

Abstract

The actin cytoskeleton and cytoplasmic intermediate filaments contribute to cell migration and morphogenesis, but the interplay between these two central cytoskeletal elements has remained elusive. Here, we find that specific actin stress fiber structures, transverse arcs, interact with vimentin intermediate filaments and promote their retrograde flow… (More)
