Motor proteins are involved in a wide range of cellular and subcellular movements. Recent studies have implicated two motor proteins in particular, myosin II and cytoplasmic dynein, in diverse aspects of cell migration. This review focuses on emerging roles for these proteins in the nervous system, with particular emphasis on migrating neurons and neuronal growth cones. The former cells exhibit unusual features of centrosome and nuclear movement, whereas growth cones offer an opportunity to… CONTINUE READING
