Unconventional myosins: anchors in the membrane traffic relay.

Author information

Department of Genetics, Cell Biology and Development, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN 55455, USA.


The family of unconventional myosins is ever growing and the functions attributed to them seem to expand in parallel. These actin-based motor proteins have been implicated in processes as seemingly diverse as endocytosis and exocytosis, the transport of organelles, in spermatogenesis and in neurosensory functions such as hearing and sight. A common myosin function may underlie them all--the regulation of intracellular membrane traffic.
