Figure 15.3 Actin dynamics is controlled by actin-binding proteins (A) and is enhanced in
presence of villin (B). (A colour reproduction of this figure can be found in the colour plate
regulate important cellular functions such as ionic transport. Many studies
have shown that some transporters or ionic channels are regulated by the actin
cytoskeleton organization. The involvement of an actin remodelling protein
such as villin is to be further investigated in this process (Cantiello, 1995;
Cantiello et al., 1991). Future studies need to be performed to unravel the
signalling pathways and protein complexes that couple the structural activities
of villin to signal transduction processes.
