For many years, analyses of the role of the actomyosin cytoskeleton in many basic cellular processes have centered on actin. Increasingly, however, a number of investigators are examining proteins that are proximal to actin; in particular, nonmuscle myosin II (NMII). Recent experiments have increased our understanding of the role of NMII in three related cellular activities: generation of cell polarity, cell migration and cell-cell adhesion. Progress has been particularly promising thanks to… CONTINUE READING
