  • Some cells initiate motility, counter-intuitively, by retracting the rear, rather than protruding the front, but details of this process remained obscure. Joint work of Mogilner and Theriot labs shows that this symmetry breaking process is based on coupling of two mechanical pathways - actin flow accumulating myosin at the rear generating further flow, and faster flow switching adhesions from gripping ...
