Functional coordination of microtubule-based and actin-based motility in melanophores

Abstract

The fish melanophore has been considered the exemplar of microtubule-based organelle transport. In this system, a radial array of uniformly polarized microtubules [1] provides a framework on which dynein-related and kinesin-related motors drive pigment granules toward the minus or plus ends, respectively [2-4]. Stimulation of minus-end motors accounts… (More)
