  • 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 ...

Kris Gunsalus talks about her latest Cell paper on gene networks in a complex tissue

High-content screening for gene profiling has generally been limited to single cells. Here, we explore an alternative approach—profiling gene function by analyzing effects of gene knockdowns on the architecture of a complex tissue in a multicellular organism. Read More
