A LINC between the nucleus and the cytoskeleton takes form(in)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Dynamic nuclear positioning requires the formation of robust connections between the cytoskeleton and components of the LINC complex, a protein assembly that spans the nuclear envelope. A new study by Lim et al. (2021) reveals the mechanism of association between the LINC complex proteins Nesprin-1/2 Giant and the cytoplasmic formin FHOD1.
