Fission yeast Adf1 is necessary for reassembly of actin filaments into the contractile ring during cytokinesis.
Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications（2018）
ADF/cofilin family proteins quickly disassemble actin in vitro, and are thought to be involved in various actin dynamics in the cell. Adf1 is a member of this family proteins expressed in fission yeast, and is thought to play roles in actin patch dynamics and also contractile ring formation during cytokinesis. We aimed to understand the function of this protein in cytokinesis in detail using the temperature-sensitive mutant adf1-1.更多
