Mechanosensitive myosin II but not cofilin primarily contributes to cyclic cell stretch-induced selective disassembly of actin stress fibers.

Am J Physiol Cell Physiol 2021 Apr 21. Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Division of Bioengineering, Graduate School of Engineering Science, Osaka University, Japan.

Cells adapt to applied cyclic stretch (CS) to circumvent chronic activation of proinflammatory signaling. Currently, the molecular mechanism of the selective disassembly of actin stress fibers (SFs) in the stretch direction, which occurs at the early stage of the cellular response to CS, remains controversial. Here we suggest that the mechanosensitive behavior of myosin II, a major cross-linker of SFs, primarily contributes to the directional disassembly of the actomyosin complex SFs in bovine vascular smooth muscle cells and human U2OS osteosarcoma cells.
