I am interested in a detailed mechanistic understanding of the Myosin V-driven transport of melanosomes in Xenopus melanophores. It was suggested that Myosin V transport activity is only required during the dispersion process and is dispensable during melanosome aggregation. By establishing the melanosome transport by Myosin V on actin filaments in vitro, I want to shed light on the regulatory mechanism governing Myosin V activity.
