Cytochalasin D are isomeric metabolites of Metarrhizium anisopliae. Cytochalasin D possesses antibiotic and antitumor activity. It also impairs maintenance of long term potentiation (LTP) of actin filaments. It is implicated in promoting conditions favorable for depolymerizing actin.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cell permeable fungal toxin; potent inhibitor of actin polymerization. Disrupts actin microfilaments and activates the p53-dependent pathways causing arrest of the cell cycle at the G1-S transition. Inhibits smooth muscle contraction. Inhibits insulin-stimulated, but not basal, transport of glucose.

During development and in adult tissues separation of phenotypically distinct cell populations is necessary to ensure proper organization and function of tissues and organs. Various phenomena, such as differential adhesion, differential mechanical tension and cell-cell repulsion, are proposed to cause

Heterogeneity in human pluripotent stem cell (PSC) fates is partially caused by mechanical asymmetry arising from spatial polarization of cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesions. Independent studies have shown that integrin and E-cadherin adhesions promote opposing differentiation and pluripotent fates respectively although

T-cell immunoglobulin mucin protein 4 (TIM4), a phosphatidylserine (PtdSer)-binding receptor, mediates the phagocytosis of apoptotic cells. How TIM4 exerts its function is unclear, and conflicting data have emerged. To define the mode of action of TIM4, we used two distinct
