Unconventional myosins are actin-based motors with a growing number of attributed functions. Interestingly, it has been proposed that integrins are transported by unidentified myosins to facilitate cellular remodelling. Here we present an interaction between the unconventional myosin-X (Myo10) FERM (band 4.1/ezrin/radixin/moesin) domain and an NPXY motif within β-integrin cytoplasmic domains. Importantly, knock-down of Myo10 by short interfering RNA impaired integrin function in cell adhesion… 

Myosin-X and talin modulate integrin activity at filopodia tips

TLDR
The data indicate that an integrin-binding FERM domain coupled to a myosin motor is a core requirement for integrinactivation in filopodia, and proposes a two-step integrin activation model in filipodia: receptor tethering by MYO10 followed by talin-mediated integrin activated.

Myosin-X: a MyTH-FERM myosin at the tips of filopodia

TLDR
Exciting new studies have begun to reveal the structure and single-molecule properties of this intriguing myosin, as well as its mechanisms of regulation and induction of filopodia.

Myosin-X is required for integrin activation at filopodia tips

TLDR
Observations demonstrate a complex regulation of integrin activity, at filopodia tips, via MYO10-FERM domain and challenge the concept of MYO 10-dependent integrin transport in filopody, using structured illumination and scanning electron microscopy.

An unconventional myosin required for cell polarization and chemotaxis

TLDR
Data reveal a role for a MyTH/FERM myosin in mediating early chemotactic signaling and suggest that MyTH-FERM proteins have conserved roles in signaling and the generation of cell polarity.

VASP mediated actin dynamics activate and recruit a filopodia myosin

TLDR
This work reveals how filopodia initiation requires close collaboration between an actin binding protein, the state of the actin cytoskeleton and MF myosin activity.

Structural basis of cargo recognition by the myosin-X MyTH4–FERM domain

TLDR
The results provide the molecular basis by which myosin‐X facilitates alternative dual binding to cargos and microtubules and that both DCC and integrin bindings interfere with microtubule binding and that DCC binding interferes with integrin binding.

VASP-mediated actin dynamics activate and recruit a filopodia myosin

TLDR
This work reveals how filopodia initiation requires close collaboration between an actin-binding protein, the state of the actin cytoskeleton and MF myosin activity.

The myosin family: unconventional roles of actin‐dependent molecular motors in immune cells

TLDR
The current understanding of myosins in leukocytes is summarized, with emphasis on the emerging roles of these molecular motors in immune functions.

Differential regulation of myosin X movements by its cargos, DCC and neogenin

TLDR
Different regulatory roles on Myo X activity by its cargo proteins, DCC and neogenin are demonstrated, revealing different cellular functions of D CC and neogensin.

Myosin IIA and formin dependent mechanosensitivity of filopodia adhesion

TLDR
It is shown that myosin X induced filipodia adhesion to fibronectin requires activity of myos in IIA at the filopodium base and formin at the tip to support force transmission through the actin core.

An Interaction between a-Actinin and the/ 1 Integrin Subunit In Vitro

TLDR
The finding of an interaction between the cytoplasmic domain of/3~ inte- grin and the actin-binding protein ot-actinin may contribute to the attachment of actin filaments to the membrane in certain locations.

Myosin-X is an unconventional myosin that undergoes intrafilopodial motility

TLDR
The localization and movements of M10 strongly suggest that it functions as a motor for intrafilopodial motility, which is reported here that myosin-X (Myo10 or M10), the founding member of a novel class of myosins, localizes to the tips of filopodia and undergoes striking forward and rearward movements within filopode motility.

An interaction between alpha-actinin and the beta 1 integrin subunit in vitro

TLDR
The finding of an interaction between the cytoplasmic domain of beta 1 integrin and the actin-binding protein alpha-actinin is reported, suggesting that this integrin-alpha- actinin linkage may contribute to the attachment of actin filaments to the membrane in certain locations.

A role for myosin VII in dynamic cell adhesion

Nerve growth factor stimulates coupling of beta1 integrin to distinct transport mechanisms in the filopodia of growth cones.

TLDR
It is shown that a soluble factor can stimulate the coupling of a receptor for substrate-bound factor to two actomyosin-based transport mechanisms and thus facilitate the response of the growth cone to the substrate- bound factor by increasing cycling of the receptor at the periphery.

The Talin Head Domain Binds to Integrin β Subunit Cytoplasmic Tails and Regulates Integrin Activation*

TLDR
It is reported that an integrin-binding site is localized within the N-terminal talin head domain, which binds to integrins to form a link to the actin cytoskeleton and can thus regulate integrin function.
