    ..Therefore, fimbrin Fim1 has diverse roles as both a filament "gatekeeper" and as a filament cross-linker. ..

    ..These results indicate that Mok1 plays a crucial role in cell morphogenesis interdependently of the actin cytoskeleton and works as one of downstream effectors for Pck1/2. ..

    ..We identified two independent pathways that control polarization of endocytic sites, one depending on acp2(+) and aip1(+) during interphase and the other independent of acp1(+), acp2(+), and aip1(+) during mitosis.

    ..Thus, Fim1 may function in stabilizing the F-actin patches. We also isolated the gene encoding Acp1, a subunit of the heterodimeric F-actin capping protein...

    ..Tropomyosin was shown to antagonize the function of Adf1 in the contractile ring. We propose that formation and maintenance of the contractile ring are achieved by a balanced collaboration of these proteins. ..

    ..We go on to show that TORC2-dependent phosphorylation of actin-capping protein 1 (Acp1, a known regulator of cytokinesis) controls CAR stability, modulates Acp1-Acp2 (the equivalent of the mammalian ..
