Cdc2-mediated Phosphorylation of CLIP-170 Is Essential for Its Inhibition of Centrosome Reduplication*
TLDR
It is found that depletion of CLIP-170 leads to centrosome reduplication and that Cdc2 phosphorylation of CLip-170 is required for the process, demonstrating that CDC2-mediated phosphorylates this protein is essential for the normal function of this protein during cell cycle progression.
Plk1 phosphorylates CLIP-170 and regulates its binding to microtubules for chromosome alignment.
TLDR
During mitosis, stable kinetochore/MT attachment and subsequent chromosome alignment require CLIP-170 and a proper phosphorylation/dephosphorylation cycle at Ser312, which is proposed to be regulated by Polo-like kinase 1.
CLIP-170 interacts with dynactin complex and the APC-binding protein EB1 by different mechanisms.
TLDR
The data suggest that the CLIP-170/dynactin interaction can target dynactin complex to microtubule plus ends, although Dynactin likely also targets MT plus ends directly via the microtubules binding motif of the p150(Glued) subunit.
The microtubule-binding protein CLIP-170 coordinates mDia1 and actin reorganization during CR3-mediated phagocytosis
TLDR
A new microtubule/actin cooperation that involves CLIP-170 and mDia1 and that functions downstream of αMβ2 integrins is unraveled and is shown to be essential for efficient phagocytosis triggered by αM β2 integrin/complement receptor activation.
CLIP-170 and IQGAP1 Cooperatively Regulate Dendrite Morphology
TLDR
It is demonstrated that microtubule plus-end tracking protein CLIP-170 and actin-binding protein IQGAP1 regulate dendrite morphology of rat neurons by coordinating the interaction between microtubules and the actin cytoskeleton.
Phosphorylation of EB1 regulates the recruitment of CLIP-170 and p150glued to the plus ends of astral microtubules
TLDR
Mechanistic studies reveal that ASK1-mediated phosphorylation of EB1 enhances the localization of cytoplasmic linker protein 170 (CLIP-170) and p150glued to the plus ends of astral microtubules, thereby recruiting these +TIPs to microtubule plus ends.
The CLIP-170 N-terminal domain binds directly to both F-actin and microtubules in a mutually exclusive manner
Characterizing interactions between the microtubule-binding protein CLIP-170 and F-actin
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CLIP-170 can bind to filamentous actin (F-actin) directly, and observations lead us to speculate that direct CLip-170:F- actin interactions may function to reduce the stability of MTs in actin-rich regions of the cell, as previously proposed for EB1.
Spatial regulation of CLASP affinity for microtubules by Rac1 and GSK3β in migrating epithelial cells
TLDR
The striking difference of the microtubules cytoskeleton in the lamella as compared with the cell body is demonstrated and the first direct observation of subcellular regulation of a microtubule-associated protein in migrating cells is provided.

Results indicate that mDia1 may coordinate microtubules and F-actin through its FH2 and FH1 regions, respectively.
IQGAP1, a Rac- and Cdc42-binding Protein, Directly Binds and Cross-links Microfilaments
TLDR
The purification and characterization of a protein, IQGAP1, is reported, which is likely to mediate effects of these GTPases on microfilament-rich lamellipodia and filopodia, and it is suggested that the actin-binding activity of IQG AP1 is regulated by calmodulin.

mDia mediates Rho-regulated formation and orientation of stable microtubules
TLDR
The results show that mDia is sufficient to generate and orient stable microtubules, and indicate that Dia-related formins are part of a conserved pathway that regulates the dynamics of microtubule ends.
Regulation of Cross-linking of Actin Filament by IQGAP1, a Target for Cdc42*
TLDR
Results strongly suggest that IQGAP1, acting downstream of Cdc42, can cross-link the actin filament through its oligomerization.
Colocalization of cytoplasmic dynein with dynactin and CLIP-170 at microtubule distal ends.
TLDR
The functional interaction between dynactin and cytoplasmic dynein further suggests that this these regions represent accumulations of cy toplasmo-dynein cargo-loading sites involved in the early stages of minus end-directed organelle transport.
