    ..Together, these data suggest that the WASH molecular machine, integrating CP with a NPF, controls the fission of endosomes through an interplay between the forces generated by microtubule motors and actin polymerization. ..

    ..We conclude that the Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome complex BLOC-1 and its cargo PI4KIIα interact with regulators of the actin cytoskeleton. ..

    ..Thus, our data indicated that WASH complex regulated Arp2/3 complex and were required for cytokinesis and following polar body extrusion during mouse oocyte meiotic maturation. ..

    ..Retromer function is reliant on a number of proteins from the SNX family. In the present article, we discuss this inter-relationship and how defects in retromer function are increasingly being linked with human disease. ..
