High impact information on coro

  • C. elegans POD-1 and Drosophila coro regulate the actin cytoskeleton, but also govern vesicular trafficking as indicated by mutant phenotypes [1].
  • Coronin proteins as multifunctional regulators of the cytoskeleton and membrane trafficking [1].
  • Both viable and lethal alleles of coro show genetic interactions with syntaxin1A, a gene required for membrane trafficking [2].
  • We report cloning and characterization of coro, which codes for the Drosophila homologue of the F-actin binding protein coronin [2].
