2006). Moreover, links established between microtubules and the actin cytoskeleton are likely crucial in endocytic processes occurring during IS formation. Unfortunately, the putative actin regulators controlling MTOC polarization are largely unknown. , 2007) (Fig. 3). Actinnucleating FMNL1 and mDIA1 co-localized near the centrosome and controlled MTOC polarity and cell-mediated killing, whereas TCRmediated MTOC repositioning was unexpectedly ARP2/3-independent. Moreover, FMNL1 and mDIA1 display strikingly different patterns of MTOC co-localization and loss of either FMNL1 or mDIA1 individually affects MTOC reorientation, suggesting that they are not functionally redundant in this regard.

In addition to F-actin reorganization, the MTOC and vimentin (intermediate filaments) also rapidly relocate to the base of the uropod, with microtubules radiating into the uropod, perhaps increasing T cell deformability during chemotaxis. Mitochondria may regulate myosin activity for contraction within the uropod, whereas clathrin-mediated endocytosis occurring in the uropod could control receptor recycling during migration. Lastly, adhesion molecules are localized to the uropod via ERM-dependent anchoring to the cortical actin cytoskeleton and might allow responding T cells to recruit bystander lymphocytes to sites of inflammation or periodically anchor the cell to the substratum during locomotion.

TCR ligation leads to a transient deacetylation of microtubules and then enhanced microtubule acetylation at the IS, which is important for microtubule stability. , lytic granules and cytokines) travels along microtubules using minus-end-directed movement to the centrosome, which directs secretion toward the APC surface through specialized domains within the IS. 30 Timothy S. Gomez and Daniel D. , 2001). , 2006). Moreover, links established between microtubules and the actin cytoskeleton are likely crucial in endocytic processes occurring during IS formation.
