Published: 6 October 2022
...Zachary McDargh; Tianyi Zhu; Hongkang Zhu; Ben O'Shaughnessy ABSTRACT In common with other actomyosin contractile cellular machineries, actin turnover is required for normal function of the cytokinetic contractile ring. Cofilin is an actin-binding protein contributing to turnover by severing actin...

... and myosin II accumulation. Where these areas widen, the cleavage furrow may branch or expand. When two furrows meet, they fuse, thus separating portions of the multi-nucleate cell from each other. Unilateral furrows are distinguished from the contractile ring of a normal furrow by their expansion rather...

... regarding the physical division of primary spermatocytes during meiosis I. Here, we investigated this process using high-resolution time-lapse confocal microscopy and examined the spatiotemporal regulation of contractile ring assembly in C. elegans primary spermatocytes. We found that centralspindlin...

Published: 17 June 2019
...M. C. Mangione; Kathleen L. Gould ABSTRACT Animal cells, amoebas and yeast divide using a force-generating, actin- and myosin-based contractile ring or ‘cytokinetic ring’ (CR). Despite intensive research, questions remain about the spatial organization of CR components, the mechanism by which...

...Masak Takaine; Osamu Numata; Kentaro Nakano ABSTRACT The actomyosin-based contractile ring, which assembles at the cell equator, maintains its circularity during cytokinesis in many eukaryotic cells, ensuring its efficient constriction. Although consistent maintenance of the ring is one...

...I-Ju Lee; Jian-Qiu Wu Summary Division-site selection and contractile-ring assembly are two crucial steps in cytokinesis. In fission yeast, the anillin-like Mid1 protein specifies the division site at the cell equator by assembling cortical nodes, the precursors of the contractile ring. Thus, Mid1...
