The cytoskeletal motor proteins Dynein and MyoV direct apical transport of Crumbs

Aguilar-Aragon, Mario; Fletcher, Georgina; Thompson, Barry


Crumbs (Crb in Drosophila; CRB1-3 in mammals) is a transmembrane determinant of epithelial cell polarity and a regulator of Hippo signalling. Crb is normally localized to apical cell-cell contacts, just above adherens junctions, but how apical trafficking of Crb is regulated in epithelial cells remains unclear. We use the Drosophila follicular epithelium to demonstrate that polarized trafficking of Crb is mediated by transport along microtubules by the motor protein Dynein and along actin...[Show more]
