Stacks of nonmuscle myosin IIA filaments form by the expansion of single filaments and concatenation of multiple filaments. Expansion is the dominant mechanism and is characterized by distinct structural steps. It is dependent on both motor activity and actin filament concentration. Expansion and catenation occur in both crawling and dividing cells.
