    Pak2 is required for actin cytoskeleton remodeling, TCR signaling, and normal thymocyte development and maturation

    Hyewon Phee et al.
    The p21-activated kinase 2 (Pak2) is an essential regulator that governs the actin cytoskeleton-dependent signaling to ensure normal thymocyte development, maturation and egress.

    Distinct mesoderm migration phenotypes in extra-embryonic and embryonic regions of the early mouse embryo

    Bechara Saykali et al.
    At gastrulation, mesoderm arises as a migratory germ layer that will participate to both foetal and placental development through region-dependant adaptation of cytoskeleton composition, cell shape and migration mode.

    Stromule extension along microtubules coordinated with actin-mediated anchoring guides perinuclear chloroplast movement during innate immunity

    Amutha Sampath Kumar et al.
    Stromules induced during plant innate immunity dynamically interact and use the cytoskeleton to form and to direct the movement of chloroplasts.

    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.

    Lamellipodin promotes actin assembly by clustering Ena/VASP proteins and tethering them to actin filaments

    Scott D Hansen, R Dyche Mullins
    Lamellipodin, an important regulator of cytoskeletal and assembly cell migration, enhances the activity of Ena/VASP family actin polymerases by clustering them on leading-edge membranes and tethering them to actin filaments.

    Analysis of cellular behavior and cytoskeletal dynamics reveal a constriction mechanism driving optic cup morphogenesis

    María Nicolás-Pérez et al.
    High-resolution live imaging analysis shows a constriction mechanism that drives zebrafish optic cup morphogenesis and highlights the role of the extracellular matrix in transmitting tensions beyond the cellular level.

    The paranodal cytoskeleton clusters Na+ channels at nodes of Ranvier

    Veronique Amor et al.
    Single and double-knockout mouse models for proteins associated with nodes of Ranvier reveal that a paranodal, spectrin-based lateral diffusion barrier is sufficient to cluster Na+ channels at nodes of Ranvier.

    DAPK interacts with Patronin and the microtubule cytoskeleton in epidermal development and wound repair

    Marian Chuang et al.
    Genetic suppressor screens with C. elegans reveal a novel function for the Death Associated Protein Kinase in regulation of epithelial microtubule dynamics.

    Site-specific glycosylation regulates the form and function of the intermediate filament cytoskeleton

    Heather J Tarbet et al.
    The in vivo modification of the canonical intermediate filament protein vimentin with O-linked beta-N-acetylglucosamine affects its function in filament assembly, cell migration and host-pathogen interactions.
