Contractile proteins

proteins which participate in contractile processes. They include muscle proteins as well as those found in other cells and tissues. In the latter, these proteins participate in localised contractile events in the cytoplasm, in motile activity, and in cell aggregation phenomena.

Re: Unusual cell division- Identifying mutant protein and genes

... the following. (See quote, and highlights) This leads me to think the proteins that were mutated were involved with Cytokinesis. It also mentions ... cell division. In animal cells, a cleavage furrow (pinch) containing a contractile ring develops where the metaphase plate used to be, pinching ...
