  • Classical models of leading-edge protrusion rely on a Arp2/3-dependent treadmilling of dendritic actin network. However, in the absence of the Arp2/3 complex fibroblast cells maintain an ability to move. Joint work of Mogilner and Rong Li labs shows that cells extend formin-driven filopodia and build actin-myosin arcs in between filopodia, so that contraction of these arcs acting against membrane tension ...
