The myosin-II-responsive focal adhesion proteome: a tour de force?

Nature Cell Biology volume 13, pages 344346 (2011) | Download Citation

The formation and maturation of focal adhesions involves significant changes in protein composition and requires acto-myosin contractility. A mass spectrometry approach reveals changes to the focal adhesion proteome on myosin inhibition, providing a valuable resource for the cell adhesion field.
