... of distinct cortical and cytoplasmic F-actin networks. Here, we show that the conserved actin-depolymerizing factor cofilin is activated in a switch-like manner upon meiosis resumption from prophase arrest. Interfering with cofilin activation during maturation resulted in widespread elongation of microvilli...

... overaccumulation phenotype in WTS-1-depleted cells was mitigated by the associated PTRN-1 loss. We further demonstrated that recycling defects and actin overaccumulation in WTS-1-deficient cells were reduced by the overexpression of constitutively active UNC-60A(S3A) (a cofilin protein homolog), which aligns...

... this asymmetry is established remains unclear. Here, we provide evidence for a model in which the actin-severing protein cofilin (specifically cofilin-1) participates in symmetry breakage by removing low-tension actomyosin filaments during transverse arc assembly. Cofilin knockdown (KD) produces a non-polarized...

Motivated by the recently uncovered developmental expression atlas of γ-neurons, we here focus on the role of the actin-severing protein cofilin during axon regrowth. We show that Twinstar (Tsr), the fly...

ROCK1-dependent regulated actin depolymerisation by cofilin-1 in cooperation with actin crosslinking by α-actinin is essential for complete coat contraction. In summary, our data suggest a complementary role for regulated actin depolymerisation...
