The microtubule (MT) and actin cytoskeletons are fundamental to cell integrity, because they control a host of cellular activities, including cell division, growth, polarization, and migration. Proteins involved in mediating the cross-talk between MT and actin cytoskeletons are key to many cellular processes and play important physiological roles. We identified a new member of the GAS2 family of MT-actin cross-linking proteins, named G2L3 (GAS2-like 3). We show that GAS2-like 3 is widely… Expand
GAS2-like proteins mediate communication between microtubules and actin through interactions with end-binding proteins
TLDR
This work demonstrates that three members of the growth-arrest-specific 2 (GAS2) family are differentially involved in mediating the crosstalk between filamentous actin and microtubule (MT) and actin cytoskeletons, and leads to a model in which end-binding (EB) proteins play a key role in mediates actin–MT crosStalk. Expand
The Gas2 family protein Pigs is a microtubule +TIP that affects cytoskeleton organisation
TLDR
The ability of the single Drosophila Gas2-like protein Pigs to interact with both actin and MT cytoskeletons, both in vitro and in vivo, is dissect and complex regulatory interactions that determine the localisation of Pigs to and its effects on the cytoskeleton are illustrated. Expand
GAS2-like 1 coordinates cell division through its association with end-binding proteins
TLDR
It is shown that the depletion of G2L1 results in a reduction in the number of cells undergoing cell division and a significant proportion of those cells that do divide are either multinucleated, display deformed nuclei, or undergo cell division at a much slower rate. Expand
Gas2l3, a Novel Constriction Site-Associated Protein Whose Regulation Is Mediated by the APC/CCdh1 Complex
TLDR
Overexpression of Gas2l3 specifically interferes with cell abscission, which is the final stage of cell division, when the cutting of the intercellular bridge at the constriction sites occurs, and is suggested to be part of the cellular mechanism that terminates cell division. Expand
Gas 2 l 3 , a Novel Constriction Site-Associated Protein Whose Regulation Is Mediated by the \ ( APC / C ^ { Cdh 1 } \ ) Complex
Growth arrest-specific 2-like protein 3 (Gas2l3) was recently identified as an Actin/Tubulin cross-linker protein that regulates cytokinesis. Using cell-free systems from both frog eggs and humanExpand
Growth arrest–specific 2 protein family: Structure and function
TLDR
This review facilitates a comprehensive molecular understanding of the involvement of the GAS2 family members in an array of biological processes, including cytoskeleton reorganization, cell cycle, apoptosis and cancer development. Expand
GAS2L3, a target gene of the DREAM complex, is required for proper cytokinesis and genomic stability
TLDR
It is found that GAS2L3 localizes to the spindle midzone and the midbody during anaphase and cytokinesis, respectively, which contributes to the understanding of how DREAM regulates cytokinesIS. Expand
Interaction of microtubules with the actin cytoskeleton via cross-talk of EB1-containing +TIPs and γ-actin in epithelial cells
TLDR
The data represent the first demonstration that microtubule +TIPs protein EB1 interacts mainly with γ-cytoplasmic actin in epithelial cells and show more effective microtubules growth in the absence of β-actin. Expand
Gas2l3 is essential for brain morphogenesis and development.
TLDR
This study provides the first insight into the function of gas2l3 in vivo, demonstrating its essential role in brain development and loss-of-function experiments. Expand
A novel Gαs-binding protein, Gas-2 like 2, facilitates the signaling of the A2A adenosine receptor.
TLDR
G2L2 is a new effector that controls the action of A2AR by modulating its ability to regulate the Gαs-mediated cAMP contents by facilitating the recruitment of the trimeric G protein complex to the proximal position of A 2AR for efficient activation. Expand

Microfilament reorganization during apoptosis: the role of Gas2, a possible substrate for ICE‐like proteases.
TLDR
The evidence accumulated here could represent a first example of a mechanism linking apoptosis with the co‐ordinated microfilament‐dependent cell shape changes, as possibly mediated by an interleukin‐1 beta‐converting enzyme (ICE)‐like dependent proteolytic cleavage of the Gas2 protein. Expand
Gas2, a growth arrest-specific protein, is a component of the microfilament network system
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Gas2 is a component of the microfilament system and colocalizes with actin fiber, at the cell border and also along the stress fiber, in growth- arrested NIH 3T3 cells. Expand
Characterization of the microtubule binding domain of microtubule actin crosslinking factor (MACF): identification of a novel group of microtubule associated proteins.
TLDR
The C-terminus of MACF contains at least two microtubule-binding regions, a GAR domain and a domain containing glycine-serine-arginine (GSR) repeats, which shows that the GSR-containing domain of plectin, but not desmoplakin, can bind to MTs in vivo. Expand
The CH-domain of calponin does not determine the modes of calponin binding to F-actin.
TLDR
The results suggest that the form and function of the structurally conserved CH-domain found in many other actin-binding proteins have diverged, which has broad implications for inferring function from the presence of structurally Conserved domains. Expand
Phosphorylation of the growth arrest-specific protein Gas2 is coupled to actin rearrangements during Go-->G1 transition in NIH 3T3 cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the kinetics of Gas2 phosphorylation, during Go-->G1 transition, as induced by addition of 20% FCS to serum starved NIH 3T3 cells, is temporally coupled to the reorganization of actin cytoskeleton. Expand
ACF7 Regulates Cytoskeletal-Focal Adhesion Dynamics and Migration and Has ATPase Activity
TLDR
An intrinsic actin-regulated ATPase domain is uncovered in ACF7 and it is demonstrated that it is both functional and essential for these roles and provides insight into the functions of this important cytoskeletal crosslinking protein in regulating dynamic interactions between MTs and F-actin to sustain directional cell movement. Expand
The single CH domain of calponin is neither sufficient nor necessary for F-actin binding.
TLDR
It is confirmed that the presence of a single CH domain alone is neither sufficient nor necessary to mediate actin binding, and the carboxy-terminal tandem repeats of h1 and h2 calponin are shown to harbour a second, independent actinbinding motif. Expand
ACF7 An essential integrator of microtubule dynamics
TLDR
It is shown that ACF7 is an essential integrator of MT-actin dynamics, and spectraplakins are important for controlling microtubule dynamics and reinforcing links between microtubules and polarized F- actin, so that cellular polarization and coordinated cell movements can be sustained. Expand
Short Stop provides an essential link between F-actin and microtubules during axon extension.
TLDR
Results suggest that Shot coordinates regulated interactions between F-actin and microtubules that are crucial for neuronal morphogenesis, and suggests that intracellular Ca(2+) release may regulate Shot activity. Expand
Plakins in development and disease.
TLDR
Two other mammalian plakins, Bullous pemphigoid antigen 1 (BPAG1) and microtubule actin cross-linking factor 1 (MACF1), that are expressed in multiple isoforms in different tissues are described and their relationship to the spectrin superfamily of proteins is described. Expand
