Abstract:The authors show that the heterodimeric capping protein subunit CAPZB is required during development of stereocilia, actin-filled processes of the inner ear. They find that CAPZB prevents depolymerization of newly formed actin filaments during the developmental stage when stereocilia widen.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
