... for spatially and temporally ordered contraction in adult cardiomyocytes. However, the mechanism(s) underlying the control of cardiomyocyte alignment remains elusive. Here, we report that SIRT1, the most conserved NAD + -dependent protein deacetylase highly expressed in perinatal heart, plays an important role...

... fibroblasts did not differ in in vitro assays of adhesion or migration; however, in 3D culture, periostin-knockout fibroblasts showed a significantly reduced ability to contract a collagen matrix, and adopted a dendritic phenotype. Recombinant periostin restored the defects in cell morphology and matrix...

... regulators of contraction of the myoepithelial sheath. These are two of the three components of the troponin complex that is generally considered as a striated-muscle-specific regulator of actomyosin contraction. Here, we report identification of troponin I as the third component of the troponin complex...

... protrusions of such cells was four-times higher than the flux into the elongating cylindrical protrusions of the cells treated with quinine alone. These results indicate that the force responsible for the quinine-induced protrusion is mainly due to contraction of the cell body, which requires normal myosin II...

.... Immunofluorescence and in situ hybridization techniques revealed that contracting myocytes display well aligned myofibrils and a diffuse distribution of α-myosin heavy chain mRNA. Inhibition of contractile activity with the calcium channel blocker verapamil (10 μM) resulted in myofibril disassembly and a perinuclear...
