Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. Most organelle transport ceases when cells begin mitosis. But how is this accomplished? As Cheney and Rodriguez explain in their Perspective, cell cycle-dependent phosphorylation of myosin-V--a motor protein that moves organelles along actin filaments--results in release of myosin-V from the organelle and cessation of actin-based organelle transport (Karcher et al.).
