The number of actin binding proteins for which (part of) the three-dimensional structure is known, is steadily increasing. This has led to a picture in which defined structural modules with actin binding capacity are shared between different actin binding proteins. A classification of these based on their common three-dimensional modules appears a logical future step and in this review we provide an initial list starting from the currently known structures. The discussed cases illustrate that a… CONTINUE READING
