Abstract :
[en] The view that myosins, which are actin based molecular motors, are only driving muscle contraction evolved a lot during the last decades. Nowadays, it is known that they reshape the actin skeleton, anchor or transport vesicles, organelles as well as protein complexes. Here, we review how their role in cell division, polarization, migration and death is related to the cancer phenotype. We will further focus our attention on recent evidences suggesting that these central roles make them prime biomarker candidates for the prognosis of various cancers. Finally, we will discuss emerging evidences raising myosins as new therapeutic targets to fight malignant tumors.
