Membrane motility mediated by unconventional myosin. Academic Article uri icon


  • Largely on the basis of their physical properties and their localization to cell membranes, it has been proposed that the unconventional myosins are membrane motors. In the past year, a combination of immunological, biochemical and genetic approaches has begun to provide direct evidence that unconventional myosins have important roles in movements of the plasma membrane and cytoplasmic organelles.
