IQGAP confines myosin-II to the cytokinetic contractile ring
Takaine M, Numata O, Nakano K
Biophysics   52(1) S116-S116   Aug 2012
During cytokinesis, myosin-II concentrates at the equatorial cortex with actin
filaments (F-actin) and is supposed to generate forces to divide the cell into two,
which is called the contractile ring (CR) hypothesis. Several lines of evidence
