The cellular organization, function, and molecular composition of selected biological systems with prominent actin filament bundles are reviewed. An overall picture of the great variety of functions served by actin bundles emerges from this overview. A unifying theme is that the actin cross-linking proteins are conserved throughout the eukaryotic kingdom and yet assembled in a variety of combinations to produce actin bundles of differing functions. Mechanisms of actin bundle formation in vitro… CONTINUE READING
