Bibliography of ADF/Cofilin Literature

No such list is ever going to be anywhere like complete, so if your paper is not here please let me know.  As of May 2002 this list is about 250 papers and growing, I will add abstracts and descriptions as I get time. Preference will be given to the older (non-web) papers.
