Microtubules keep large cells in shape

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademic


Migrating cells need to coordinate extension and retraction of their protrusions to avoid fragmenting. Kopf et al. (2020. J. Cell Biol.https://doi.org/10.1083/jcb.201907154) demonstrate that microtubules help to maintain cell coherence during amoeboid migration by controlling actomyosin contractility in retracting protrusions.
