Cell biological functions of actin have recently expanded from cytoplasm to nucleus, with actin implicated in such diverse processes as gene expression, transcription factor regulation and intranuclear motility. Actin in the nucleus seems to behave differently than in the cytoplasm, raising new questions regarding the molecular mechanisms by which actin functions in cells. In this review, I will discuss dynamic properties of nuclear actin that are related to its polymerization cycle and… Expand
