Myosin VII

Sažetak
Background: The initial stages of phagocytosis and cell motility resemble each other. The extension of a pseudopod at the leading edge of a migratory cell and the formation of a phagocytic cup are actin dependent, and each rely on the plasma membrane adhering to a surface during dynamic extension. Results: A myosin VII null mutant exhibited a drastic loss of adhesion to particles, consistent with the extent of an observed decrease in particle uptake. Additionally, cell-cell adhesion and the adhesion of the leading edge to the substratum during cell migration were defective in the myosin VII null cells. GFP-myosin VII rescued the phagocytosis defect of the null mutant and was distributed in the cytosol and recruited to the cortical cytoskeleton, where it appeared to be enriched at the tips of filopods. It was also localized to phagocytic cups, but only during the initial stages of particle engulfment. During migration, GFP-myosin VII is found at the leading edge of the cell. Conclusions: Myosin VII plays an important role in mediating the initial binding of cells to substrata, a novel role for an unconventional myosin.
