What is the role of plastin in C elegans embryogenesis?

Plastin, an actin cross-linking protein, has been shown to be instrumental for efficient cytokinesis and polarization in C. elegans zygotes. By increasing connectivity within the cortical actomyosin network, plastin provides strength to the network, to enable a coordinated cortical flow required to segregate proteins during zygote polarization. Similarly, […]
