What is the motor protein for this type of cytoskeletal element? Myosin II proteins form bipolar filaments that are found in the belt of AJs and actin filaments that rings each epithelial cell. By what mechanism does the combination of these three elements (myosin II, AJs and actin filaments) lead to apical constriction of epithelial cells? Why is it important that epithelial cells are connected by AJs in order...
