The cytoskeleton of both T cells and antigen-presenting cells promotes mechanical signaling during T cell activation.

People & Ideas

Pederson’s career has revolved around the nucleus, nucleolus, and the nucleoproteins that inhabit them.



Cdc15 contributes to contractile ring formation and cytokinesis by recruiting the formin Cdc12, which defines a novel cytokinetic function for an F-BAR domain.


The Asterless N terminus promotes Plk4 homodimerization and autophosphorylation during interphase, whereas its C terminus stabilizes Plk4 during mitosis.

Both centromere–centrosome and telomere–centrosome contacts can promote spindle formation during meiosis.

Mitofusin 2 plays an unexpected role in maintaining the terpenoid biosynthesis pathway and is necessary for mitochondrial coenzyme Q biosynthesis.

During cell migration, F-actin bundles/filopodia serve as templates for formation and orientation of lamellipodia and prime their stabilization by adhesion-based PI3K signaling.

The actin-binding proteins moesin and α-actinin-1 limit the lateral mobility and clustering of ICAM-1 in dendritic cells and thereby promote antigen-dependent conjugate formation and T cell priming.

The T cell actin network generates mechanical forces that regulate LFA-1 activity at the immunological synapse.
