Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

13 Scopus citations


Spectacular images of the process of myosin II filament formation and organization in migrating cells are unveiled by super-resolution imaging. A combination of short- and long-range interactions with actin filaments is seen to play a critical role in filament partitioning and alignment into contractile actin arcs and stress fibres.
