The cytoskeleton provides the structural basis for physi­cal robustness, shape, move­ment, and in­tracellular dynamics of eukaryotic cells. In muscle cells, it forms the con­tractile apparatus, confers structural support and positions organelles; in neurons, it maintains the asymmetric cell shape and polarity; and in epithelial cells, it plays a pivotal role in main­taining cell and tissue integrity. We are interested in cyto­skeletal linker proteins (cytolinkers), a
