Posttranscriptional and posttranslational regulation of actin.

Summary of "Posttranscriptional and posttranslational regulation of actin."

Actin is one of the most abundant intracellular proteins, essential in every eukaryotic cell type. Actin plays key roles in tissue morphogenesis, cell adhesion, muscle contraction, and developmental reprogramming. Most actin studies have focused on its regulation at the protein level, either directly or through differential interactions with over a hundred intracellular binding partners. However, numerous studies emerging in recent years demonstrate specific types of nucleotide-level regulation that strongly affect non-muscle actins during cell migration and adhesion and are potentially applicable to other members of the actin family. This regulation involves zipcode-mediated actin mRNA targeting to the cell periphery, proposed to mediate local synthesis of actin at the cell leading edge, as well as the recently discovered N-terminal arginylation that specifically targets non-muscle β-actin via a nucleotide-dependent mechanism. Moreover, a study published this year suggests that actin's essential roles at the organismal level may be entirely nucleotide-dependent. This review summarizes the emerging data on actin's nucleotide-level regulation. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A dioxygenase and alkylation repair homolog that mediates demethylation of ACTIN monomethylated at 'Lys-84' (K84me1). Demethylation of actin LYSINE 84 (K84me1) is required for maintaining actin and MYOSIN dynamics to support normal cleavage furrow ingression during CYTOKINESIS and CELL MIGRATION. It may also be involved in transcription regulation.

A family of low MOLECULAR WEIGHT actin-binding proteins found throughout eukaryotes. They remodel the actin CYTOSKELETON by severing ACTIN FILAMENTS and increasing the rate of monomer dissociation.

An actin capping protein that binds to the barbed-ends of ACTIN filaments. It is a heterodimer consisting of an alpha and a beta subunit. It regulates actin assembly by stabilizing actin oligomers for elongation. In SKELETAL MUSCLE, CapZ is localized to the Z-disk.

Actin capping proteins are cytoskeletal proteins that bind to the ends of ACTIN FILAMENTS to regulate actin polymerization.

A protein factor that regulates the length of R-actin. It is chemically similar, but immunochemically distinguishable from actin.
