Figure 16-15Actin at the crossroads

Actin binds to a very large variety of accessory proteins in all eucaryotic cells. This diagram shows most of the interactions that have been demonstrated, using either genetic or biochemical techniques, in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Accessory proteins that operate in the same intracellular process are shown in the same color, as indicated in the key. (Adapted from D. Botstein et al., in The Molecular and Cellular Biology of the Yeast Saccharomyces [J.R. Broach, J.R. Pringle, E.W. Jones, eds.], Cold Spring Harbor, NY: Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 1991.)
