Tropomodulins and tropomyosins: working as a team.
Pullman, United States. In J Muscle Res Cell Motil, 2013
Actin filament length is optimized by tropomodulin (Tmod), which caps the slow growing (pointed end) of thin filaments to inhibit polymerization or depolymerization.
Actin binding proteins: regulation of cytoskeletal microfilaments.
Sydney, Australia. In Physiol Rev, 2003
In this review we selected several ABPs (ADF/cofilin, profilin, gelsolin, thymosin beta4, DNase I, CapZ, tropomodulin, and Arp2/3) that regulate actin-driven assembly, i.e., movement that is independent of motor proteins.
