In both dividing and interphase cells, microtubules are remodeled in response to signal transduction pathways triggered by a variety of stimuli. Members of the Rho family of small GTPases have emerged as key intermediates in transmitting signals to cortical factors that mediate capture of dynamic...
All characterized myosins share a common ATPase mechanism. However, detailed kinetic analyses suggest that modulation of the rate and equilibrium constants that define the ATPase cycle confers specific properties to these motor proteins, suiting them to specific physiological tasks. Understanding...
