Many neuronal disorders such as lissencephaly, epilepsy, and schizophrenia are caused by the abnormal migration of neurons in the developing brain. The role of the actin cytoskeleton in neuronal migration disorders has in large part remained elusive. Here we show that the F-actin depolymerizing factor n-cofilin controls cell migration and cell cycle… CONTINUE READING
