Actin–microtubule crosstalk in cell biology
Actin–microtubule crosstalk in cell biology, Published online: 15 October 2018; doi:10.1038/s41580-018-0067-1
Actin and microtubules are essential for key cellular processes, including cell polarization, migration and division. Although their cellular roles are distinct, actin and microtubules also extensively influence each other’s dynamics and organization. This crosstalk encompasses multiple mechanisms and involves various crosslinkers, motors and regulatory proteins as well as mechanical cooperation.
