    The membrane periodic skeleton is an actomyosin network that regulates axonal diameter and conduction

    Ana Rita Costa et al.
    The axonal cytoskeletal contains an actomyosin-II network that controls circumferential axonal contraction and expansion with the potential of regulating fluctuations in diameter during action potential firing, trafficking, and degeneration.

    Cell lineage-dependent chiral actomyosin flows drive cellular rearrangements in early Caenorhabditis elegans development

    Lokesh G Pimpale et al.
    Developmentally controlled chiral counter-rotating actomyosin flows drive cell-lineage spindle skews and cell rearrangements during cytokinesis in early nematode development.

    Actomyosin regulation by Eph receptor signaling couples boundary cell formation to border sharpness

    Jordi Cayuso et al.
    Boundary cell identity and sharpening of borders are coupled in hindbrain development since both are regulated by mechanical tension.

    Apical contacts stemming from incomplete delamination guide progenitor cell allocation through a dragging mechanism

    Eduardo Pulgar et al.
    Incomplete delamination serves as a cellular platform for coordinated tissue movements during development, guiding newly formed progenitor cell groups to the differentiation site.

    Spectrin regulates Hippo signaling by modulating cortical actomyosin activity

    Hua Deng et al.
    A contractile structural protein of the membrane-associated cytoskeleton is a Hippo signaling component that works through the regulation of non-muscle myosin activity in Drosophila.

    Calponin-homology domain mediated bending of membrane-associated actin filaments

    Saravanan Palani et al.
    Combination of actin and curly on lipid membranes constitutes a new, minimalistic system to generate high curvature actin rings that can contract upon the action of myosin II filaments.

    LIS1 determines cleavage plane positioning by regulating actomyosin-mediated cell membrane contractility

    Hyang Mi Moon et al.
    Novel insights into LIS1-dependent regulation of cell membrane contractility and cleavage axis specification identify a key molecular network regulating mitoses of neural progenitors and somatic cells during development.

    The Mitotic Exit Network integrates temporal and spatial signals by distributing regulation across multiple components

    Ian Winsten Campbell et al.
    By distributing regulation to both the GTPase and downstream kinases, the Mitotic Exit Network creates a single signal from spatial and temporal inputs.

    Self-organized patterning of cell morphology via mechanosensitive feedback

    Natalie A Dye et al.
    Radial patterns of cell morphology in the Drosophila larval wing emerge through mechanosensitive dynamics of cell polarity.

    Lamellar projections in the endolymphatic sac act as a relief valve to regulate inner ear pressure

    Ian A Swinburne et al.
    The pressure of fluid in the inner ear is controlled by opening of cellular valves in the endolymphatic sac to allow for regulated transepithelial fluid flow.
