A new role for the architecture of microvillar actin bundles in apical retention of membrane proteins


The bundled architecture of actin filaments is not needed for intestinal microvillar morphogenesis, as shown in knockout mice devoid of microvillar actin-bundling proteins. This architecture is essential for the apical anchorage of digestive proteins, probably via the recruitment of key players in apical retention, such as myosin-1a, and, as a result, for intestinal physiology
