A Transient Pool of Nuclear F-actin at Mitotic Exit Ccontrols Chromatin Organization (Source: Nature Cell Biology)


In journal Nature Cell Biology, Kei Miyamoto from Faculty of Biology-Oriented Science and Technology, along with researchers from Germany, UK etc., discribes a transient formation of protain (called "F-actin") in cell nuclei.
Their findings identify a cell-cycle-specific and spatiotemporally controlled form of nuclear F-actin that reorganizes the mammalian nucleus after mitosis.
