Formins are a large family of multi-domain polypeptides that form homodimers. The highly conserved formin homology 2 (FH2) domain and its neighboring formin homology 1 (FH1) domain, which are surrounded by regulatory domains, cooperate in rapidly assembling profilin-actin into long filaments while remaining continuously associated with the fast-growing barbed end. Recent biochemical, biophysical, theoretical and structural studies have concluded that diverse formins are mechanistically similar… CONTINUE READING
