    Mechanotransduction current is essential for stability of the transducing stereocilia in mammalian auditory hair cells

    A Catalina Vélez-Ortega et al.
    The remarkable lifelong stability of mechanotransducing stereocilia of the inner ear hair cells depends on the activity of the transduction ion channels located at the tips of these mechanosensory projections.

    Myosin III-mediated cross-linking and stimulation of actin bundling activity of Espin

    Haiyang Liu et al.
    The tail domain of Myosin III binds to and cross-links actin bundling protein Espin1 and thus modulates higher order actin bundle structures in cellular processes such as stereocilia and microvilli.
