Networking and anchoring through plectin: a key to IF functionality and mechanotransduction.

Abstract

Intermediate filaments (IFs) are involved in multiple cellular processes that are essential for the maintenance of cell and tissue integrity as well as response and adaption to stress. Mainly through pathological manifestations in patients and the analysis of genetic mouse models, it became evident that cytolinker proteins of the plakin protein family are… (More)
