GO term:actin filament organization
Synonym: actin filament organisation
Synonym: regulation of actin filament localization
GO id:GO:0007015
Definition:A process that is carried out at the cellular level which results in the assembly, arrangement of constituent parts, or disassembly of cytoskeletal structures comprising actin filaments. Includes processes that control the spatial distribution of actin filaments, such as organizing filaments into meshworks, bundles, or other structures, as by cross-linking.
