Flightless I Regulates Hemidesmosome Formation and Integrin-Mediated Cellular Adhesion and Migration during Wound Repair

Kopecki, Zlatko; Arkell, Ruth; Powell, Barry C; Cowin, Allison


Flightless I (Flii), a highly conserved member of the gelsolin family of actin-remodelling proteins associates with actin structures and is involved in cellular motility and adhesion. Our previous studies have shown that Flii is an important negative regulator of wound repair. Here, we show that Flii affects hemidesmosome formation and integrin-mediated keratinocyte adhesion and migration. Impaired hemidesmosome formation and sparse arrangements of keratin cytoskeleton tonofilaments and actin...[Show more]
